High-Speed Rail

Boarding train 353 in Kalamazoo.

Boarding train 353 in Kalamazoo.

(Three Oaks, Michigan) If you think high-speed rail will never roll in America, then visit Three Oaks some afternoon when Amtrak train 353, the Wolverine, blazes through town on the way to Chicago.  That was my experience Wednesday, February 12, Lincoln’s birthday, when I was heading through town on the way home from running errands.  I saw the westbound train speeding toward town and decided to park and film.  Bingo. I filmed the train as it sped through town and was most impressed.  We’ve been aboard and can attest to the promise of high-speed rail in America, at least in Michigan.  Check it out and check out Amtrak at Amtrak.com or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.

    Charley, remember the French turbotrains? Aren’t they mothballed somewhere? They were the greatest I thought. Bob
