High Speed Rail

Well, Counters, it appears that after a twenty year debate, high speed rail may soon be coming to the Tampa-Orlando corridor thanks to funding provided by the federal government.

Now, if you are unfamiliar with high speed rail and how it operates, this olelongrooffan suggests you google it because, after all, this is By The Numbers, not By The Rails.

But basically, this is an image of recent design and it is considered by the federal government to be the latest and greatest technology.

The following train is the design utilized in Taiwan

while the following is the design utilized in Great Britain.

But are those birds brains intelligent politicians up in Tallahassee, the state capital of The Sunshine State, going to utilize any of that tried and true technology?

No, they are proposing to rewrite the rulebook on High Speed Rail.

And this is what they've come up with.

And it is knowing this olelongrooffan has had that image in my library for quite some time and coming up with a reason to share it with you Counters that lets me

Celebrate Life.
