Yes. This is a very good news. But I have difficulty to understand why they're waiting for 2030 to build and inaugurate the Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor ? Why not in three,four,five or eight years to build and inaugurate this future high speed railroad ?

Why it's so long to build that ? Unbelievable.

But I will see high speed trains running at 200 mph (320 km/h) in metric system, from Washington DC to Jacksonville FL on their own tracks reserved for high speed trains like in Europe especially like in France and the freight trains exemple CSX and Norfolk Southern have your existing railroad tracks reserved to them as they're not really like to see Amtrak trains on their lines.

And the former Seaboard Coast Line railroad which is removed from Petersburg VA to Henderson NC before the city of Raleigh will be completely reserved for HST travelling at 200 milles in hour which 320 kilometers in hours in metric system.

And you sincerly think there are still level grade crossings along this future railroad track ? There have none. They will be replaced by overpasses which roads pass over or below the SEHSR. And also it will be like that throughout the future HSR corridor.

Same thing on the former CSX Everett sub in the Georgia State which the both sides of the line is now unused by trains and also abandonned except from Richmond Hill until Riceboro where the Riceboro Southern Railway and the First Coast Railroad from Seals GA to Yulee FL used them both the former CSX track. But a brand new HSR tracks can be build alongside the existing FC and Riceboro Southern track from one end to the other of this Everett Sub.

And finally the whole line will be completely electrified as the Northeast Corridor and Amtrak will become the sole and exclusive owner of the future HSR link from Washington DC to Jacksonville FL since it is already owner of the Northeast Corridor.

Yes, it seems like it takes forever to get anything done in this country at a time when we need jobs. Another example is the "higher speed" improvements on the Chicago-St. Louis route. The money had been approved. They did 20 miles of track improvement and took the winter off. BUT, this has been a mild winter in the Midwest with many days over 50 degrees.Yesterday was the first snowfall in Kansas City with 3 inches (which melted today). The track workers are hardy, macho men.
