      If this link works.lol Search: Maglev, Magnetic Train, also Cost is
      another search. These are insane trains that go around 270 miles an
      hour.

      The Selected Projects

      Pennsylvania. A 45-mile project linking Pittsburgh's airport
      with downtown Pittsburgh and the eastern suburbs of Monroeville and
      Greensburg. The route eventually could extend to Philadelphia.
      Proposed by the Port Authority of Allegheny County on behalf of
      Maglev Inc., a private consortium.
      Maryland. A 40-mile project linking Camden Yard in Baltimore and
      the Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Union Station in
      Washington, D.C. Proposed by Maryland Department of Transportation.
      Nevada. A 42-mile project linking Las Vegas with Primm, Nev. The
      route later could extend to Anaheim, Calif. Proposed by California-
      Nevada Super Speed Train Commission.
      Florida. A 20-mile project linking Port Canaveral to the Space
      Center and the Titusville Regional Airport. Proposed by Florida
      Department of Transportation.
      Louisiana. A 40-mile project linking New Orleans Union Passenger
      Terminal to the airport and the city's northern suburbs. The route
      later could go to Houston and Birmingham, Ala. Proposed by Greater
      New Orleans Expressway Commission.
      Georgia. A 40-mile link from Atlanta to Cartersville, Ga.,
      eventually extending to Chattanooga, Tenn. Proposed by Atlanta
      Regional Commission.
      California. A 70- to 75-mile system connecting Los Angeles
      International Airport to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to
      Ontario Airport and east into Riverside County. Proposed by state of
      California.
      Note: The seven projects will share $12 million, although
      specific funding levels were not announced



      So any developers want to take advantage of this very expensive but
      incredible train find a spot along it and create a car free paradise.
      On a side note in developement I would suggest a storage depot right
      next to a heavy rail that would connect to both the rural areas for
      raw materials and a city for american junk. Ow and act fast before it
      all becomes parking.

      ps:If Im totally out to lunch on this, hey it's just an idea!
