HSR is a boondoggle, a waste of taxpayers money, and total foolishness. We already have private autos and buses, both of which use public-funded highways, and airplanes, using public-funded airports and traffic control. There is no excuse whatever for spending incredible amounts of money to trim the running times. Even the loonies in Kalifornia are starting to see the light, after pouring large amounts down the drain already. "The property" may be 4 or 5 tracks wide, but it belongs to somebody else. HSR would not be a miracle, it would be a nightmare of epic proportions.
If HSR did miracle become in process of construction. We do NOT need NEW ROW. the property is already 4 or 5 tracks wide. there will be enough room for single track for HSR with passing sidings.
I'm just saying "miracle" for these who want that. what I am saying that it's impossible.... And the main object was that the space of ROW - I'm just saying there is enough for 4 tracks entire way and there's no need to purchase more land outside of ROW. but behind the door, you and I know that it's not gonna happen for HSR... well only 0.5% chance of miracle to occurs...
