28. Maglev technology is certainly promising and where it's already up and running...

in China it's a success, although you exaggerate slightly in say maglev makes air travel seem like horse and carriage. That's a nice turn of phrase but come on, the 270 mph of the existent Chinese maglev line is nowhere near the 500 mph plus of airline speed.

And even if maglev reached much over the speed of airlines there would be the problem of breaking sound barrier and all the accompanying problems that would bring. So the 270 mph of the Chinese maglev is possible but traditional high-speed rail can reach that speed too so is maglev less costly to build and maintain?

And more likely to get funded v regular high-speed rail, which is already having much resistance in getting funding.
