I have a foolproof plan for cheap high speed rail.
- Take a medium speed train. Paint it in a new color scheme. And announce it is a new high speed train.
- Wait until a stupid greenie holds a news conference demanding that the high speed trains run slower to save on CO2.
- Have the train company announce that it will gladly comply with the greenies and run the new “high speed” train at “medium speed” train velocity.
- Bank the savings.
