DailyDirt: Trains, Trains, Trains. I've Got a Thing About Trains...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Trains are an often over-looked form of transportation in the US. But trains are actually one of the most fuel-efficient ways to travel -- able to move a ton of freight over 400 miles on just one gallon of fuel. Here are just a few quick links on some cool train projects. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Yeah, great idea; build a train tunnel to Nome. Only one problem: There are no train tracks (or roads) that come out of Nome.

    Oh, and no train tracks from Alaska to the rest of the US (and only one road).

    I thought this crazy scheme had died five years ago; why is it surging in popularity again all of a sudden?

    By line: 2007! It DID die five years ago!
