How About Train Proliferation?

Good morning.

So help me, I could not read about Iran's ambitious new railway infrastructure project, which would connect its central cities and will eventually extend to reach Iraq and Syria, without giggling about covert operatives sneaking out to Kermanshah and putting pennies on the railroad tracks.

It would be nice if we were all competing to have the best trans-continental train system instead of other things.

I know we made the choice of the Interstate Highway System back in the late 50s, but I sometimes wonder what things would have been like if we'd opted for a better train system.
