High-speed rail system coming to the US.

Within the next decade, travelers may be able to travel the US by rail at speeds approaching 220 mph. Plans are underway for a high-speed rail system in the United States. The rail system won't reach every corner of the country, instead the plan calls for ten discrete new corridors of cities that are 100 to 600 miles apart. California is likely to be the first state in the US for the high-speed rail.
