US Hyperloop aims to challenge high speed rail


On the face of it, the concept seems to rely much on the same principles as Brunels "atmospheric railway" - only putting the whole train in the tube, as against only a "paddle" underneath the conventional train. I'm not sure what the "passenger acceptance" would be for travelling such distances in a tube - not much of a view after all, and the "track" wouldn't exactly be an attractive addition to the landscape. But an interesting idea all the same. Mike Paul, Stuttgart, Germany
