Now we are starting to talk big bucks for this project but still no mention of where the money is comming from.    One thing to ink the deal, another to get it funded.

Don't know, but I'm thinking the Japanese. They want this, and it's in their nature to think long term.

Don't overlook the Chinese - they are building HSR everywhere else in the world and it would be a real coup to do it in the USA.
