Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Virginia is building a 'high speed' rail project between Washington, DC (capital of the USA) and Richmond, VA (capital of Virginia).
High speed: faster than a car can get you there during rush hour (think traffic jams).
Top speed: 60-90 miles per hour (96-144 km/h) - frequent stops are planned.
Duration of the trip between Richmond and DC: TBD - even though they've already starting laying the tracks...
As far as I know Hyperloop was not considered. Even though construction has already begun, one would think that this option should be on the table.
Looks like VA is finally entering the 20th (sic) century!
