Unlike the UK rail network, where the default position seems to be to
avoid building new lines entirely, and to repair the existing ones
only when spurred to by horrific accidents.  Instead, money we *could*
use for such things is spent on things like shareholder profits, and
repainting rolling stock every few years when the franchises rotate

Still beats flying, though.
