Response to Time for change (Original post)

51. Need jobs?

 

This will do it:
The Steel Interstate System
http://www.steelinterstate.org/concept

The Steel Interstate System (SIS) is a core national network of high capacity, grade separated, electrified railroad mainlines. It would realize for railroads what the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System achieved for roads, and would become the backbone for movement of both goods and people in the 21st Century. Many more trains of all kinds could be accommodated and they could move much faster, providing truck-competitive speeds for movement of freight, and auto-competitive speeds for movement of passengers. This section describes what such a rail system would look like, how the SIS would transport all kinds of goods as well as people, and how the concept fits into the evolution of rail transportation in America.


Think of the jobs this would generate. And the spin-off jobs. And the spin-offs of the spin-offs...
