The thing is that these railroads are created for one reason, it is for transportation. However if the opposing does not allow this, which transportation vehicle would they use? Airplanes are too expensive, cars take continuous oil, and other vehicles just use too many resources to even use once. The speed rail would allow easier transportation, while allowing people not to use so much money on moving to one place. It only makes sense that there should be a transportation device like this!!!
It may be a great accomplishment but its two ends r in the middle of nowhere. It is also too expensive to build. This is just not worth the time and money to build. If they could change its route to bigger cities not small places like bakersield then it would be more valuable
