Can we order some please?

High-speed trains made locally will begin service in South Korea in 2008. Bullet trains can travel at a maximum speed of 300 kilometers per hour.

No problem. How many $billions do you have lying around?

In New York State, NYC to Buffalo (800 kilometers, water level, already good track) is estimated to take us$billions to upgrade to tgv. Most experts conclude it isn't worth it. There are more cities and more and richer population involved, too. In NZ you are talking about a totally new roadbed over nearly all the distance and tiny ridership. No way could this be economical.

Charles is right - although this blog is about urban passenger rail transport, not long-distance passenger rail transport, as high-speed trains usually are.
