China’s Newest Bullet Train is Awesome!

CHINA NEW MASSIVE HSR TRAIN

SHARE WITH TRUE LOVERS OF HSR!

The first mass production type of high speed rail bullet train, the CR400AF Fuxinghao (The Revival), began its service at Beijing South Railway Station in China this past June, immediately after an unveiling ceremony the day before.
It’s a magnificent HSR train, and it’s a tragedy we have nothing close to it here in the United States. China continues to increase and improve it’s high speed rail routes and fleets of bullet trains.
Meanwhile, America continues to languish in massive vehicular traffic jams and gridlock, traveling aboard sardine-can, customer abusive airliners and being ferried via an old, slow-moving train system not much improved since the 1950s. Do Americans have to go to China or Europe to experience world-class transportation again?

High Speed Rail in South Korea is Impressive!

S. KOREA HSR MAP

SHARE WITH HSR AFICIONADOS EVERYWHERE!

Did you know that South Korea now has high speed rail? In fact, the country has four different lines in service and plans to build more and have them in place in time for the Winter Olympics coming to Seoul late next year.
How many HSR lines in service in the United States? Zero!
But who knows. Maybe South Korea will become our inspiration and motivation to once more become the innovative, technologically advanced country we used to be. And escape the inferior bonds of a second-rate transportation country.

Japan’s Newest Bullet Train is Fast!

JAPAN BULLETS

PLEASE SHARE WITH TRAIN LOVERS EVERYWHERE!

Japan now has bullet trains that can travel 360 KPH, and it wouldn’t surprise us as fast as an actual bullet soon. And maybe even sooner before America ever finally updates its aging, antiquated, oil-dependent transportation system of old trains, sardine-stuffing planes and endless automobile-mentality for brains!

America is first in everything? Definitely in swimming events at the Summer Olympics. Fast, efficient, economical highway transportation? Not even close.

GENERAL SHERMAN TREE

PLEASE SHARE WITH FRIENDS & VETERANS!

Sequoia National Park near central California is often called the protector park. For it protects the Giant Forest, which boasts some of the world’s largest trees, including the General Sherman, a giant sequoia which is the largest living tree on Earth! It stands almost 275 feet in height, with a circumference of 102 feet, and its largest branch having a diameter of 6.8 feet. General Sherman (named after the famous Civil War general!) has an estimated age of 2,300–2,700 years.
Other features of Sequoia National Park include over 240 caves, a long segment of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and Moro Rock, a large granite dome. The park also contains among its natural resources the highest point in the contiguous 48 United States: Mount Whitney, which towers at 14,494 feet (4,418 m) above sea level.
Sequoia National Park is a giant place (spanning 404,064 acres) and a beautiful vacation spot during spring and summer of each year. To learn more about this magnificent national park, visit this giant website: https://www.nps.gov/seki/index.htm
