The United States might not have much, but we do have our own flavor of high-speed rail: Amtrak's Acela Express. I set out to see just how fast the Acela could go, and clocked it at 150 mph outside Providence, RI. The friendly conductor even let me into the control room to push the mysterious Button 8!
This video was recorded on a Kodak Zi8 camera at 720p/30 fps. I used MotionX GPSLite on an iPhone 3GS to verify the speed.
