Hopefully they can improve their island by getting the population jobs etc and improve relations with China.

China’s Ministry of Railways is going to spend $300 billion on transportation systems through 2020. The U.S. committed about $8 billion in similar projects. Meanwhile, Amtrak’s high speed Acela train loses power while “racing” through Connecticut from New York City to Boston because the tracks are not upgraded to take the train to its full 150mph potential.
This is how Chinese people get to work in big cities.
It's also how they commute between two major urban
centers like Shanghai and Beijing.
These are the trains the average person takes from
Boston to Providence, or from Boston to New York
every day. The conductor often has to use his bare feet
like Fred Flintstone to get the train going...
Beijing subway, Olympic Line.
New York's No. 7 pulling into glamorous 42nd Street.
What century is this?

They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Croatian Railways, USA eat your heart out
Brazil should have a train like this,but its trains systems are in precarie conditions and most of the population travel by bus or airplanes.

It'll run right in the middle of it all. From downtown Minneapolis, across the university and into the dark abyss-ah... I mean St. Paul!
I'm very excited about the project, even though it'll be completed after I finish school, so I probably won't use it as much as I would if it was done by now.
There's some talk about even building it south west too, but we'll see if that pans out.

The US, Japan and the European Union have filed a case against China at the World Trade Organization, challenging its restrictions on rare earth exports.
US President Barack Obama announced the filing at the White House, accusing China of breaking agreed WTO rules.
Beijing has set quotas for exports of rare earths, which are critical to the manufacture of high-tech products from hybrid cars, to flat-screen TVs.
It is the first WTO case to be filed jointly by the US, EU and Japan.
They argue that by limiting exports, China, which produces more than 95% of the world's rare earth metals, has pushed up prices.

China's space program is going to be interesting to watch. They're in a position where money doesn't appear to be an object, but they don't have nearly as much experience as Russia or the US. They seem to be trying a huge range of things. In two decades they'll have put a man in space by themselves, launched a rover, several satellites, a moon sample return mission, and a space station. It's like they're mad they missed the Space Race so they're trying to fit their own in. In about one third the time.
Well maybe China wants to learn and research things,I hope they do like send a man into space an stuff like that.Maybe one day they would be the first ones to travel OUT side of our solar system,I bet it's possible!

I agree with you wjfox,this situation is a shame and ridiculous,the trains of United states should be more high-tech than those of china's.After all,they are much more developed...
The population of the US is just to spread out. We have some states that are larger than entire countries. Now if we took everyone in California and put them inside New York, I bet we would have a great rail line there.
