In a rave review of high speed trains for business travelers, New York Times writer Paul Burnham Finney (April 24) says more American business people are taking the train - - in Europe, Japan and elsewhere.
It's another big event in Train Month (that's what it seems like this month). He writes that business people prefer trains over planes, and obviously cars. Faster. And they can work online, as the trains there have high speed Internet connections.
The train from Paris to Brussels, he writes, takes only an hour and a half. No one flies between those two cities anymore, he says.
And our NineShift conclusion is that Americans like trains too. Hopefully business will advocate for more trains here too.
