With trains replacing planes for the Boswash metro region, home to 16% of the country's population and certainly more than that economically, we are estimating some 10-20% of the business economy in the U.S. has now shifted from cars to trains.
Here's the deal. We only need to connect 100 U.S. cities by train to impact 75% of all economic activity in the country.
So no one is trying to push trains on Wyoming or rural Missouri. Those in Wyoming and rural Missouri and the other 20% of the country in rural areas can keep driving.
