  •  One note to include there is that ... (0+ / 0-)

    ... a corridor that is 4hrs end to end through almost anywhere in the eastern US offers a large number of trips 3hrs or less, with the middle half of the corridor featuring under 3hr trips along the entire corridor in both directions. So with the Wolverine, or the Ohio 3C Rapid Rail version or the Columbus / Chicago or the Chicago / St. Louis, any analysis that ignores that there are people living in the middle half of the corridor would be way off on the viability of the corridor.

    In the simplest abstract case, a 4hr corridor with 9 evenly spaced stations (1/2hr apart) ~  has 28 distinct trips that are 1-4 hrs ... only three of them are longer than 3hrs.
