Question

Kevin here. There are different ways of going from one Australian city to other cities. There is Highway 1 which circumnavigates all of Australia. There are regular trains, and there are commercial jet aircraft. Has anyone thought of building a mag-lev train? This type of train is supported by a strong magnetic field. Since there is little friction tremendous speeds can be attained. A typical mag-lev train can move at 600 kilometers per hour. That means that it would take just 4 and 1/2 hours to go from Brisbane to Perth. Of course building such a train would be an enormous expenditure, but it could be done.

Since I was a kid there's been "talk" of a high speed rail link between Melbourne Canberra and Sydney, but that's all it's ever been

2 things will always get in the way, Environmental groups claiming it will ruin the landscape and the other, cost, with a huge land mass and only 24 million, cash will always govern the end decision

Practicalities, schmachticalities. I haven't got anything on next weekend, let's do it.

Only 10% of the total land mass in Australia is habitable so it would probably be a waste to build a mag-lev train. The minimum cost of such a project would be in the billions of dollars and Australia has better need of that money for more lucrative enterprises!

We actually do, we're quite prolific travellers, but most of us are not transient in terms of where we live. Our parents tend to keep the family home well into old age and many of us live all our lives in the first or second house we buy. Or we did back when we could afford to buy a house.

Red face

Kevin here. As you can see Estreeter's avatar is that of a younger Bruce Springsteen. One of the possible reason's for this is that Estreeter when he was younger may have had dreams of being a singer. I can just see Estreeter singing his heart out in his own back yard, when suddenly a bunch of roos, bilbies, kookaburras and snakes appear out of the bush beguiled by the sound coming from Estreeter's throat. Then the kookaburra starts making that loud kooky laughing sound. Then the neighbors call the police!

Some Australian wildlife are perfect mimics--they can replicate the sound of chainsaws, camera shutters, etc.
