PA High Speed Rail?

The remote possibility of a real rail link between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia is mentioned in the Sunday  NYT:  Entering the Superproject Void.

Funny no mention at all of maglev anywhere in there. 

I still think the idea of an enhanced Pittsburgh to Cleveland rail line is a lot more realistic project to be even thinking of. Or to be ambitious:  Cleveland - Pittsburgh - DC.  

Odds Rendell still winds up as Transportation Secretary?  I bet the Prez has some deal with LaHood to take some other job when Rendell feels he can leave Harrisburg which would leave Senator/Acting Lt Gov Scarnati as Governor.

I already picked a name: The Cleveburghton Limited. Maybe it can stop in McKeesport and Youngstown too.

The problem with Pittsburgh<->Cleveland is how much business the state liquor stores would lose. Once PA citizens discovered what a *real* liquor store was like, they'd spend all their money in Cleveland.

Clearly DC, then Philly would be Pgh's best high-speed rail links. You'd be nuts to think the future was in the Midwest and not along the coasts.

A high-speed link to DC would be an incredible boon.
