another great 20th century idea from the N-R. don't let those high-speed trains come through West Virginia; some passengers might discover the state's beauty and get off. and stay. and overcrowd our schools, churches, etc.

High speed rail linking the cities would be a good start. nobody wants to ride around in busses anymore. That was the driving force of the tourist industry in the 60's though 80's. If i could hit a major city by high speed rail i would likely visit them now and then for a weekend, concert, blues festival, any kind of festival.
