Government Money Spent Properly!

This link goes to an article about the new deal China has struck with Siemens for 1,000 high speed trains.  Imagine what would happen if the US started pushing all types of transit as aggressively as China!

Great French Train Ads

Here are a couple of french transit ads I really like.  These ads are clever, and they don't just talk about saving gas.  They get you to like the idea of transit.... even if it is being eaten or you are being tossed out of the train!
