CONTEMPLATING HIGH SPEED RAIL. I see that Tom Bozzo is now posting for Angry Bear, and a recent post mentions my case for faster passenger trains without the huge capital outlays of dedicated electrified high-speed rail. In brief: some cartel-era speed regulations are the largest impediment to passenger train operation in the 110 mph (180 km/h) range, and I have a sequence of posts to that point. Historically minded readers might find this speed tape instructive, and I can offer a look at the infrastructure that made it happen.
