China Trains Pulling Ahead

China is pulling ahead in worldwide race for high-speed rail transportation - Washington Post.

Amazing how fast China is changing.

For the longer term do bullet trains make sense for China? Is there a cost advantage when compared to planes? Ecological advantage? Capacity advantage?

My guess is yes, but I honestly don't know. Taking a plane in the US has become a dreadful and time consuming experience. With the added time needed in the US now because of the added security, my guess is any trip under train trip under 3 hours will be faster than a plane trip that only takes 40 minutes (not including check in, security check, luggage check, etc., that adds about 2 hours).
