Railway Trends from Western Europe to North America

VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 6

By comparison, the United States has lagged far behind Europe and Asia in terms of passenger rail use for years. For example, a U.S. citizen only travels an average 50 miles by rail, the Germans travel 550 miles and the Swiss and Iapanese upward of 1,200 miles. Unfortunately, while the Amtrak Acela claims atop speed of 150 mph, its actual average speed throughout the duration of a trip can be as little as half of that, even on an "express" train.
