THE CLIMATE IS RIGHT FOR TRAINS

I just recieved this and it looks like it could be interesting-especially given the extensive rail lines we have in Canada.  When I lived in Japan, I was amazed at how effective their Shinkansen (bullet train) was in moving people quickly-it was far better than flying.
