Re: Amtrak's $117 Billion Plan For High Speed Travel

Right. Curves designed for cars at 65 or 75 mph are not adequate for HSR moving at 200+ mph.

And for that matter, the Connecticut Turnpike (I-95) is just about as curvy as the existing New Haven railroad alignment.

(This doesn't mean that a highway alignment couldn't be taken advantage of in some instances.)
