Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... rather those corridors that have achieved Federal designation as HSR corridors.

So, for example, the Front Range corridor centers on Denver and Colorado Springs is still in preliminary planning, the alignment between Houston and the San Antonio / Dallas corridor is up in the air, and Sen. Reid's beloved Maglev from Las Vegas to Anaheim is only one of a variety of possible approaches, so none of those are Federally Designated Corridors.

Similarly, comparing the map to the Ohio Hub map, you can see that both the Midwest Hub and the Ohio Hub have only sought designation for stage 1 of their systems, since in each case, there's no point pushing for designation of a later stage until funding is secured to start construction of Stage 1.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
