Another Climate Friendly High Speed Rail Project Bites the Dust – Watts Up With That?

Is high-speed rail travel on a track to nowhere?
To be fair, BBC contributor Tim McDonald mentions elsewhere in his article that there are 21 profitable high speed rail routes in China (15 main routes + 6 lesser routes). Japan also has profitable routes. But pretty much nobody else seems able to repeat Japan and China's trick of building sometimes profitable high speed rail tracks.

As for Hyperloop, I'm happy to give Musk a Covid pass for not hitting his 2020 / 10km prediction, but a few hundred metres of Hyperloop in the Nevada desert is not exactly proof the technology is ready to solve the world's transportation problems.
