High speed rail link between DC and Baltimore

Seems I am not the only person that thinks that we should have a high speed rail link between DC and Baltimore. I didn’t realize that Baltimore and DC were seriously considering building a Maglev high speed rail link between the two.

The project was chosen in 2001 as one of two finalist for the future development of a magnetic levitation technology rail link. If the 40 miles are completed it would take 18 minutes to travel between the cities.

The Baltimore Business journal is reporting that $15 million may become available from the Federal Government to continue working on the BW Maglev project, however it is not clear that Maryland and DC have money spare to match the funds being released.
