Florida Governor Rick Scott has rejected Stimulus funds for the beginnings of a high speed rail system in Florida, claiming the proposed rail system was unnecessary and wasteful. 

These stimulus funds were just a part of what the Obama administration hopes will be $53 billion on building a national high-speed rail network.

And then hop aboard the Northeast Regional between Boston and Virginia Beach:

Followed by a transfer to the scenic Lake Shore Limited between New York and Chicago:

And move on to the City of New Orleans between New Orleans and Chicago:

There is something which seems to make the trains run on time, Cars:

Sounds like a plan, a nationwide network of autotrains.  And Early Bird Specials.
