FAST, SAFE, Passenger Rail Service operating ABOVE the Surface on the SHOWMETRAIN platform, means no crossings and efficient operations. Interstate High Speed Rail (HSR) will provide more travel options in America and competition to the airlines, helping to keep travel costs down.
HIGH SPEED PASSENGER RAIL SERVICE
HIGH SPEED PASSENGER RAIL: Fellow Travelers, America use to have the best transportation system in the world but no longer. The airlines have consolidated down to a few major carriers and the interstate highways are at times slowed by congestion due one reason or another, and there is slow but limited passenger train service. The SHOWMETRAIN Interstate High Speed Passenger Rail System with operating speeds around 150-300 mph is fast and safe, and will get America back on track.
SHOWMETRAIN will reduce CONGESTION on our Interstate Highways. This will save Billions of Dollars in wasted fuel, and maybe a lot of headaches. Also, if you are concerned about Distracted Drivers, then get onboard a high speed passenger train and start enjoying traveling!

Travel Comparisons: Keep in mind that the SMT HSR is not stopped by most weather issues, such as fog. It operates above the surface and travel direction is one way, just like the interstate highway. If you use an average speed of 200 mph and assume no stops, than travel time would be in the 5 hour range for a 1000 mile trip.
