One of the strange things about the United States is the barriers to innovation in terms of updating infrastructure. Europe has very nice and efficient fast trains. So wasn't it a shock to learn it has been a major policy change (a decade in the making) to allow them to be used in the United States?
I mean we are talking European trains here. Not exactly known for their glaring safety issues and constant corner cutting. [yes, I know that there are train accidents. There are also car accidents. Looking at relative rates isn't going to make the European trains look like a silly option]
