Merely a statement of hope, I reckon, but Nippon Sharyo is looking at more opportunities for its Rochelle plant:
Quote:
Amtrak Chairman Thomas Carper was among the VIPs. Jason Anderson, economic development director for Rochelle, said Carper had told him that Amtrak routes demand new and replacement cars.

“He said there are thousands of rail cars in the country that will need to be replaced,” Anderson said.

And that means more opportunities for Nippon Sharyo in Rochelle.

This is the two graphic rendered of two train will introduced in the america one is the k - star express a push pull coaches it will use it for MARC and for future replcement of amfleet, second is the inter regional high speed train it can be used for long distance and can run in electrified and non electrified lines it's suitable to amtrak services also.

One thing to note is the Nippon Sharyo trainset design (or rather design concept) is only for unpowered coaches. The locomotive will have to be from a third party supplier.

It's Actual Nippon sharyo design actually the k - star express has been approved for MARC and for amtrak is still under decision making, the second train for inter regional service is also approved for US DOT in the future the amtrak will be use this technology to replace amtrak diesel hauled train.

Technically we could, but there's barely enough political will amongst the general public and most politicians to get a standard HSR system built, nevermind the extra expense and somewhat uncertain track record of success of maglev in other places.

But why most politicals want to build only simple HSR system? I think there are no problems to build maglev for example from manhattan to JFK airport( like in Shanghai) or from Washington D.C. To New York City?

I am going to have to agree with you on that one. Boston-DC will get the ridership. I could definitely see the line extending to Miami, connecting Richmond, Raleigh, Charlotte, Atlanta, Macon, Jacksonville, Orlando, branching to Tampa and Miami.

We had a Plan for Direct Lower Manhattan Regional Rail Access along with an Airport link back in 2003 but it was thrown out due to costs even tho ridership was estimated to be 170,000+.

Really? But it's crazy, isn't it? I think they can spend much money, but this project will be very successful

All told , the sheveled and canceled Projects which would have relieved the Subway and Regional Rail congestion would have added 1.5 Million riders to the Regional Rail Network...

The new map features “both intracity and regional rail lines as well as connecting buses, proving once and for all that it’s possible to get to almost anywhere in the state on public transit,” says Twu.

The map ties together networks for Amtrak, BART, Muni, VTA, Caltrain, Altamont Commuter Express, Sacramento Regional Transit, San Diego North County Transit District (NCTD), San Diego Trolley, LA Metro, and Metrolink, as well as key bus and ferry connections.

Yes, the politicians in NYC don't seem to understand the need for proper transit between the airports and major job centers. I.e, transfer free rail between jfk and manhattan. NYC is probably lagging way behind its major global competitor cities on this issue.

Regarding the lower manhattan to jfk link that was scrapped: I think a midtown link without transfers would be far more beneficial investment as that's where most people are going.
