Amtrak is finally starting to run test trains up to 165 MPH in parts of the Northeast Corridor. I’m not sure why this pleases me so much, as I’m currently much more willing to spend the $15 on a bus ride between NYC and Boston than I am the $100+ for the train, but I think to have an option that is actually radically different from taking the bus would be awesome.
