I think the 'problem' at night is there is not much night,

By the time the Rush ends, they get setup, do a little work, its time to break down, before the Morning Rush.

W/E work allow them to a Long work period, with out the nightly Setup/Break down that probably tales 2-3hr each time they do it.

Looks like Morocco is kicking our butt on high speed rail now. It makes you wonder if we will ever get this off the ground.

Man, it's almost like decades worth of minimum tax and no spend (unless we're invading countries of course) policy has some kind of detrimental affect on the state of our national infrastructure.

I'd like to see the route from Jacksonville to Orlando turn red as that is a key feature. I do think as a nation we are way too far behind on high speed rail.
The Brightline might eventually extended to Orlando. The first phase between Miami and WPB is scheduled to open this year. Although it's not true HSR.

Thanks for the article Arjay!

This is a big risk for them.

Casablanca is a huge city and could use some love.

They are in a unique circumstance where Casablanca is where they have more people, more people, and more infrastructure, but Tangier is actually more easily and cheaply accessed by many Western Europeans.

Tangier has ferry access to many ports along the Mediterranean and Southern Spain near Cadiz to Malaga attracts a great deal of Vacationers that are very, very close to Tangier.

Still, this seems to be a very frivolous expense for the, given they do have a good train system and a full freeway between those cities and their per capita GDP is only around $8,000.

I think they are better off getting their population with a better vocational based education so investors from Europe will see them as a good, stable source of cheap labor.

Well there is Australia to compare ourselves to. That entire country/continent does not have HSR. There have been plenty of proposals and studies, but that's it. Just like us.
