I'm so glad you are thinking about the future. A 200mph track would be amazing.

I lived in Tokyo for three years and I loved taking the train. I NEVER needed a car while I was there. I was able to go anywhere I wanted to on the main island of Japan with my electronic rail pass. Swipe and go! I would love it if we were able to initiate a great rail building project in America to achieve the same results.

It certainly sounds like the folks at the Federal Railroad Administration are doing great work at the TTC. It would be an interesting place to visit. I've traveled on a high speed rail in Europe, it's a very enjoyable experience. I’m happy to hear that we Americans’ will finally be getting a high speed rail system.

The Colorado research facility does great work and it is teriffic that they are working for planning for the future of testing high speed rail. I am also glad they are testing positive train control systems there as well. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

As the President's initiative for high speed rail becomes more prominent and put into motion, this testing facility will be paramount for making sure safety is the top priority. There experience with testing high speed trains for Europe and Asia will help deliver the next generation of rail travel in the US. My hope is this will help reduce traffic congestion on our highways and reduce greenhouse emissions.

That facility is huge! 52sq miles! Wow. I am really looking forward to trains becoming more of an option for travel in the future. It's so difficult to travel by rail right now where I live I hope it becomes a more viable option in the future.

I believe they test all categories of freight and passenger rolling stock. Also vehicle and track components, and safety devices. If it has to do with rail, they test it at TTC.

maybe good Silverlight !

"American high speed rail gets off the ground, the center hopes to upgrade its test track to be able to test technology at speeds up to at least 200 miles per hour."
This is unbelievable. I want to see this:)

Tnks,, As the President's initiative for high speed rail becomes more prominent and put into motion, this testing facility will be paramount for making sure safety is the top priority.

It' great. I did not know that Asian and European high speed rail trains were tested at TTC’s 48 miles of track.

im really hapy to hear about rail ways : )
