vtsnowedin , Thanks for the link , this looks like it ,
further spending would not be warranted .
electric trains are fine , they have and are used extensively and are economically efficient
there is plenty of urban railways , underground , tramways and even trolley buses
( that's buses with electric propulsion and overhead wires )
those systems are very good in high density environment
they have decades of proven operation , past experience and tech is available

I like your post, but you don't seem to know the basic facts about US HSR.
There are no "incremental improvements" to HSR going on anywhere in the USA, because there is no HSR anywhere in the USA.
