Would a MAGLEV train be seriously considered for Sydney to Melbourne or would Elon's hyper project be a better fit?

Unfortunatly this thread is stuck down here when it really should be in the ACT section.

$1 per kg assume flat rate for a 25t container is $25,000.

[quote=Valvegear]Hello Eddy, you're back! Last time it was vacuum tube railways; now Maglev freighters.

The Japanese max speed is reckoned to be just above 600 km/h, not 700. Even so, do you want t ...

Welcome to Eddy's Costing Fairyland. We had it in another forum some time ago, and here we go again. It's very simple methodology - pull numbers out of the sky and never, never po ...
