Thailand Will Have HSR Within Six Years!

PLEASE SHARE WITH HIGH SPEED RAIL LOVERS!

More than 500 Japanese firms led by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Investment (METI) are traveling to Thailand this month to discuss and plan the building of a high speed rail line to run between Thailand’s major cities of Bangkok and Rayong (a distance of 193 km).

Construction on the line is slated to begin next year, to be completed and up and running by 2023–a mere six years from now. Trains will travel at 160km per hour, and the The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) estimates at least 103,000 people will travel the rail daily, while tourism and commerce improve substantially throughout the region.

The question is, will all of Asia have tens of thousands of miles of HSR and be completely connected by super-speed transportation within a few more years before the United States even lays one foot of bullet train track?

THAILAND

 

This is a pretty sad commentary upon the greatest and most industrialized nation in the world. You think?

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?

SHARE WITH HSR AND TRAIN LOVERS EVERYWHERE!

The expansion of high speed rail throughout the world continues. Unfortunately, though, not here in the United States. Presently, it will begin construction in Southeast Asia in the nation of Thailand, and in only a few months from now.
Why not here in America? Why doesn’t the most inventive, innovative and techno advanced country in the history of the world not have high speed rail? That’s a question to be answered. And if you visit our page here on Facebook and our many other posts, you will find the answer!

Watch This Awesome HSR Video!

FAST TRAIN

PLEASE SHARE EVERYWHERE YOU LIVE & TRAVEL!

The California High Speed Rail Authority just released a new video regarding the high speed rail project underway in the Golden State. Why do we need high speed rail in America? The reasons are a-plenty. What one frequent airline flyer (sufferer!) recently said is compelling enough:

“Flying feels like a straight jacket. A bullet train is spacious, comfortable, visually interesting to look at the window. No one has to move for me to visit the restroom. The restroom is spacious. There’s no turbulence. It’s just HEAVEN.”

Here are the reasons why:
