we want trains, but our corrupt cronie polititians would rather give our tax dollars to welfare and bank bailouts to get votes, than build somthing that would actually boost the economy and connect job markets

That is Pere Marquette, it does the standard 79MPH service. Wolverine and Blue Water go 110MPH in Michigan. In the Northeast Acela goes 150MPH and in Illinois select Lincoln Service trains go 110MPH.

Yes we do need faster trains. Here in the northeast they can do 150MPH to 165MPH. But I'm told they can do much faster - it's just the signalling gets tricky because it's a highly trafficked route. But I have seen cockpit video of those trains and they have signal indicators inside the cockpit. So that problem is solved.

Exactly. THis project is called "Project Raceway" and is currently in progress now.

Gregory, tks OK ... I read this: ... $450M project funded by the federal high-speed rail program. The project includes upgrading track, electrical power, signal systems and overhead catenary wires to improve reliability for Amtrak and commuter rail service, and is necessary to permit regular train operations at the faster speeds. Some construction activity is anticipated in 2013, but the project will ramp up dramatically thereafter to be completed in 2017.
