When is America going to invest into MagLev Trains ?
And why CCP China is kicking and owning our a""es here .

Less then 1% of US rail traffic is passenger traffic. Some 91 percent is bulk items and 9 percent is intermodular. In a MagLev every rail car has to be Maglev. This translates into rebuilding some where around 200,000 cars to operate MagLev. This is cost prohibitive. It would not decrease energy consumption, it would increase energy consumption. Add to it the cost of rebuilding 125,000 miles of track as well as an unknown number of miles of sidings and the cost staggers the imagination.
So to summarize- it is not economically feasible.
There is research on alternatives and there are also those who are proposing passenger only services that are "non-rail", such as hyper-loop.

Not anytime soon. The US has high-speed rail: the Acela in the Northeast and California's system that's under construction.

Sakashvilli and his wife are the heads of human organ harvesting operation during war in Ukraine. They send organs of civilians and organs of soldiers to Israel and America. Someone is hit by car or bullet, then their organs are harvested and sent abroad.
Holy hell mRNA vaccine by Moderna contains *Luciferin* dissolved with *66.6* ml of distilled *phosphate* buffer solution.
...mark of the beast...that's what it is...
all vaccines are chipped
all vaccines have cells of aborted fetuses in them
Police stop you at checkpoint to check if you’re chipped (aka vaccinated)
Police check the car; let's say 4 people car but signal only from 3; so, police stop it to chip the notyetchipped; signal from 4 now and police let the car go. This is prophecy by saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov. Notice police chip (aka vaccinate) people at gun point in Africa; so, no more "it's not gonna happen here" 'cuz it will soon enough, capisce?
Police do it on highways or when you leave your city... basically, you can't leave your city unless you're vaccinated; but vaccine = mark of the beast; so, escape now while your city doesn't have these rules; forgive me.
Gov't sprays chemtrails so that people feel symptoms of flu
5G will kill vaccinated; just read Georgia Guidestones' commandment of 500 million max population on earth; it fits with Orthodox Christian prophecy of 7 percent of people left
Russian Orthodox prophecy also says that there will be unbearable stench in winter. So, there you go. Russian winters are cold. So, they must have died from the new disease that doesn't have a name 'cuz it's caused by 5G.
martial law; Constitution was suspended; New World Order
read Book of Revelation; Chapters 13 and 14, please
chipped people will be influenced by super computers to receive World Passport (grey plastic card with no name on it), but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays
If you escape mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to permanent heaven
how to escape it? by hiding within a small group (10 - 15 people according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Seraphim of Sarov); no documents; no electronics
Project Pogo = Alex Jones, QAnon, Adam Green, etc. videos are put out so that gov't tracks who watches them. (Project Zyphr annihilates people who watch these videos). Drone with scopolamine will drill a hole in your window at 4 am. Once gassed, you will come out to the police van (waiting for you outside) yourself; you will be taken to underground camp to be tortured for adrenochrome. The rest of the people will be secretly (or even openly) chipped when they sign up for food in closed stores
AI (artificial intelligence aka demons) will post on your social media as if it were you doing it while you're on vacation; it will even make phone calls on behalf of you; no one will notice that you're missing in action.Source(s): Blood/body of Jesus kills parasites. Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Patriarch Irenaios 1st blessed Catacomb movement more than five years ago; what you need is antimins (remains of saints sewn into a towel), wax candles, one cup and one spoon.

Never. Why is that not perfectly obvious to you. China will not do it either and for the same reason.

Never. Country is too big, and mountainous & you just KNOW them buffalos are going to figure out how to knock a train off the track. We got planes & roads & boats & cars & ATV's & that does it all.
. We never needed Rickshaws here so we did not make them.

Considering China has less land mass than the USA and over 4 times the population I suspect it is more profitable to use train service as it can reach more people by a factor of 4.

Until room temperature superconductors are cheap and widely available then it’s not going to happen in many countries at all.
Even with such superconductors, MagLev infrastructure costs immensely more per mile than conventional rail technologies. Even simple things like having level crossings become effectively impossible with MagLev as they always need a bridge or a tunnel to cross roads. In many locations there’s simply not the space to build either of those.
But suppose the necessary superconductors and infrastructure are installed: where are you going to get the electricity to power them from?
The huge changeover to electric vehicles already means hundreds of thousands of new power stations worldwide, whether solar, wind-turbine, nuclear, hydroelectric or any other form already need to be constructed. But with conventional rail technologies it’s already easy to have hybrid diesel locomotives which use exceptionally clean versions of diesel engines solely to generate electricity to power their electric traction motors. Hybrid locos have been in commercial usage for decades: the very latest designs have very low CO2 emissions (some prototypes can capture their CO2) and their only other exhaust product is water. With hybrid locos no overhead power cables and no other electricity supply needs installation; only track needs to be laid. Even signalling can now be done wirelessly direct to the driver’s cab.
MagLev is only suited to very limited uses, and most of those are just prestige technology demonstrators which cost vastly more money to install and maintain than can ever be commercially justified.
The only way the USA will ever get any kind of high speed rail network will be if flying becomes too expensive or too uneconomical compared to investing in a conventional high speed rail system, possibly based upon or licensed from the French TGV system or perhaps the Japanese Bullet Train designs. The newest high speed train system is the Chinese one and it has potential to go significantly faster than the French and Japanese systems, but for political and security reasons it would be highly unlikely that the US would buy licenses to copy the Chinese system.

It's not economical and other than providing some funding for roads and airports the U.S. Government isn't in the transportation business. It's going to require private enterprise to pony up the money and that's just not very likely to happen on a large scale.

The US won't do it. Trains take up too much land space.

Never . . . . the Progressives want to limit the mobility of the masses, not enhance it. Eliminating fossil fuels is the big step: it will take persons off airplanes, cruise ships, motorcycles, pleasure boats and put them in little electric cars that can't go further than 250 miles, making them easier to control. They might escape if there were a decent train system.
And remember that the US is big - not like some puny little sh1thole like England or Japan or other banana republic.
