Trains outperform both flying and driving combined in every measure - capacity, mobility, convenience, speed, safety, efficiency, energy consumption, cost, profitability, national security, carbon footprint, physical footprint, economic development, smart growth, and more.

A network of high speed trains can carry more passengers than cars and airplanes combined - using a fraction of the energy, and with no delays.

"Make no small plans. They have no magic to stir humanity's blood and probably themselves will not be realized.  Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical plan once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency." -Daniel Burnham
