broadway, cardiff, cf24 1<strong>nj<\/strong> - property to let inid="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> California High-Speed Rail Authority Japan has the Shinkansen. France has the TGV. Spain has AVE. China has more high-speed rail than the rest of the world combined. 

America has... the Acela Express. All 16 stops of it in one section of the country. It reaches its top speed of 150 miles per hour (241 kph) just for a few minutes in one short section, and even that speed is pokey compared to other countries. The Shanghai Maglev reaches 268 mph.

But things are changing. Despite significant uphill battles, high-speed rail is coming to other parts of the country. Even the Acela is undergoing improvements that should make the service faster and more convenient. And high-speed rail is one of the principal pillars of the Green New Deal drafted by liberal House Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It proposes to overhaul the "transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically feasible," with high-speed rail as one of the main investments. 

This article doesn't speculate on lofty goals like that. It's not about proposed dream projects, like maglevs and hyperloops, nor is it a list of feasibility studies or "hey, we should check out high-speed rail" legislative initiatives. Instead, I'm going to tackle actual projects either in progress or seemingly about to begin.

How high is high-speed?
The answer to this question isn't as obvious as it seems. Title 49, subsection V, Part D, Chapter 261(c) of the US code says "sustained speeds of 125 mph or greater." Other countries would call that "adorable" and "200 kph." Even other portions of the US government say 150 mph or greater. 

For our purposes, NJ Tax Maps we'll go with anything above 125. This is faster than traditional trains, and given the limitations of the tracks throughout the US, a pretty reasonable increase in speed. Also, an article just about US trains capable of over 150 mph would be super short.

Other parts of the country are working on improving their "regular" rail so that it's a bit faster, like Chicago and elsewhere, but that's for another article.
