Sure that's the trouble here in Uk, but they must just run from big city to big city, Bob said he would love to go on the train, I would too

at those speeds you need to pray it stays on the track and nothing goes wrong or gets in the way.

Did you hear the boom as the train came the other way, Timbo said the train he thinks runs on elero magnets and runs just above and below the rails and no wheels.

But your right you would not want anything to go wrong, here kids would throw something onto the track
