    London New York would be a good trip.

  • Unless this is a modern 500km/h line all the way or possible maglev this will be a freight only project within a decade of completion. That said, if they build it to such a standard it would be a very impressive infrastructure project on a par with the panama cannel.

    First time I have seen a Scotsman turned up side down,and still no money come out of his pockets.

    • You know why they used that orientation on the map so that scotland is upside down don’t you, becauses Americans are so ignorant they wouldn’t be able to find their country unless its the right way up.

    This would follow the route the first occupants of the Americas took. Maybe the line could extend right down through South America. Then if Thor Hyerdal had his way, to NZ via reed boats.
