American Rail Club (ARC) is the internet's #1 research, promotion and advocacy group for high-speed rail and transit in the United States. High-speed rail (HSR) is a type of rail transport that runs significantly faster than traditional rail traffic, using an integrated system of specialized rolling stock and dedicated tracks. Whether it is for business or leisure, you can explore more destinations with the reliable and comfortable High Speed Rail service. High-speed rail detractors love to point this project as a glowing example of why the whole idea of high-speed rail is bad.
Light rail transit (LRT) is a form of passenger urban rail transit characterized by a combination of tram and metro features.
While its rolling stock is more similar to a traditional tram, it operates at a higher capacity and speed, and often on an exclusive right-of-way. The 26km High Speed Rail (Hong Kong Section) runs from West Kowloon and connects Hong Kong with the Mainland’s 25,000 km national high-speed rail network.
HIGH SPEED LIGHT FREIGHT is a second valuable use of high speed rail infrastructure (in addition to high capacity passenger transport), and adds an whole other layer of justification for building a national high speed rail network in America.
