How come every single advanced country except America has a well-developed train network?

1: Population Density. The lower the population density the less economical trains become. The United States is very large, with a widely distributed population, a large rural population and a relatively low population density.

2: We have cars. The automotive industry lobbied hard to shift the United States towards using cars and trucks and after the construction of the interstate system in the 50s we haven't really needed trains.

Good try, nigger, but the fact that the network is cheap, fast, clean, with frequent service and nigger-free, outweighs the "lack of air-conditioning".

Times are from Amtrak, thetrainline.com, and russianrailways.com.

So - a train ride of 36 hours here is 34 hours in Europe, or 38 hours in Russia. That's not a lot of difference.

America has a transcontinental rail system. The problem is that in the Western states the railways are owned by freight companies rather than commercial rail, leading to delays.

In fact people were recently talking about California's high speed rail, which is funny because the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast actually already has a first-class highspeed rail express.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acela_Express

The USA is, arguably, too large to easily have highspeed railways crisscrossing it. You can however have regional highspeed rail in states and regions the size of Japan/European nations where population density both justifies and requires a high speed train.

Too bad Calicuckland is corrupt as shit, I guess.

Cars were invented before infrastructure was saturated.

America already has a well-developed rail system. If you're referring to public transit instead (which would be my guess, you're just too fucking stupid to know how to word your sentences) then the answer would be because no one would use it. Hell, people in NYC only use the subway out of pure necessity aside from that it's just bums sleeping on the benches and shitting in the corners. Couple that with completely retarded planning (see the 1.3 billion dollar failed rail system that got scrapped in San Fransisco) and there's your answer.

If you ride the train in america, you're most likely poor.

B: most of our rail is used for commercial shipping, and there is some weird complex thing with who owns the rails, and who can rent them for what purpose or some shit.
More importantly, there are rules about when passenger rail can run (I learned about this when Austin got their little toy line running), which can fuck you over if you're trying to get somewhere by Amtrak and it has to stop and wait because freight is in the way.

Most of American cities exploded in growth after WW2. Because the advances in automobile manufacturing made them more affordable to the middle class, and Americans has more disposable income after the war, and increased birth rates, cities expanded to accommodate automobile traffic. You’ll notice that large cities prior to WW2 have mass transit, this was born out of necessity. Cities that became large after WW2 don’t have mass transit due to the mass adoption of automobiles in the 50’s and 60’s.

You have to go back to Eisenhower where everyone had firmly determined that buses and better interstate systems were going to be the future of public transportation. Why build expensive track going everywhere in a vast country when you could simply utilize road networks and shared vehicles?

This has had two major problems since

1. Public transportation is viewed as charity
So, in most countries that depend on buses for transportation the buses do fewer stops more often. Thus, they run on time, arrive at important places, and are generally much easier to increase vehicles during peak hours. In America, since buses are considered charity, the buses go everywhere, and as a reality stop at stupid places, have fewer vehicles on each route, and typically don't have effective peak adjustments. Why? Because no one wants Mrs.Smith to walk an half mile, and if Tyrone doesn't have a bus stop in his shithole neighborhood he won't get to his job and turn his life around.

Likewise, there is no money for better services because fundamentally, public transportation is charity. So, public transportation can't really fund raise with tickets, to build new infrastructure, this is why you have REALLY shit metro systems in places like DC because the funding for them has to be divided between 3 state associations.

2. [URBAN SPRAWL INTENSIFIES]
Train is stupid expensive to build in most countries, and thus it only makes sense to build in high traffic routes. Belgium gets good trains and light rails because Belgium has the density to utilize it well. NYC has a good, if not fucking disgusting, subway system for the same reason. The only actual "train" system in the US that generates a profit is the Boston - DC amtrak line simply because it is a very popular route and they can charge higher fees. But let's say we do build more trains, the big problem this will generate is that sprawl and zoning typically means people don't live close to train stations.

Much of our rail networks have actually been removed over the last 50 years due to freight being moved over the road or by air, and passengers going the same route. RR's are simply one more infrastructure to maintain, so the streamlining of it for freight makes sense. Subway/metro services are a different story, though I only see an intercity high speed rail making sense in a region like the northeast

Benjamin Ortiz

Because the US lacks highspeed rail, and that line from Boston to DC is on the slower end for highspeed train lines.

Also the government strictly regulates transit. Here in California two proposed rail lines have been in the works for years (California HighSpeed Rail [LA to SF] and DesertXpress [SB to LV] but nothing has happened due to over regulation with 10 year environmental surveys for urban areas. This lack of ability to develop new lines causes very little competition in transit driving prices up.

Not really, Alaska, most of the western states, and the great plains are extremely rural or pastorals. Don’t believe me go look at a map. It logistically doesn’t make sense to build a highspeed rail that would connect LA to NY or Miami to Seattle.

Now building rail lines for the East Coast and West Coast and Gulf States would make sense.

Because our cities didn't get bombed back to the stone age in WWII, so there wasn't anywhere to slip in decent rail transit. Also, even our cities are generally less dense than European cities.

Also, Dallas Fort Worth has a pretty decent rail system now. Houston isn't just really spread out, it's also built on a drained swamp, so it's not really a good example. But the real problem with inside a city being too spread out is that once you get to the other end of your glorious train, you're still miles away from where you want to go. Even buses will still drop you off a mile away after waiting for a 45-minute spaced ride.

Hunter Williams

Roads in the northern US have to deal with winter weather, which is really hard on asphalt, and potholes are everywhere. Concrete is more expensive, so it can't be used everywhere.

Daniel Miller

Because unlike in other countries we don't have an all encompassing central government, and our state governments do most of the work when it comes to public transportation. Not to mention that the state governments that actually need real public transportation (like a New York or California) have notoriously shitty and corrupt state governments that use public transportation as a money laundering scheme.

Look at the recent closed bullet train project in California

Jason Evans
Jason Evans

we have a fairly advanced commercial rail system still
unfortunately, Major US population centers are too far away from each other to warrant a high speed rail connection, when domestic flights are relatively cheap and the highway system already connects you to anywhere
think of it like this, if you live in Spain, sure it’s economical to take a train from Madrid to Barcelona, but if you wanted to go to London, you’re going to fly because even though it’s possible to get to London from Madrid by train it would take 5 or 6 times as long as a flight and cost more as well

ww2 bombing had nothing to do with it most european city that were destoryed in ww2 were rebuild exactly like they were before and since Europeans cities were build before cars Europeans which meant that the cities were not really fit for cars also a lot of Europeans coudnt afford cars after ww2 so the goverments focused more on public transportation , america made a consciously choice to build its city around the car and ignore public transportation

iktf. Our cities are total garbage. It takes longer to get from one side of an american city to the other by public transit than it does for a londonfag to get to paris.
Sprawl and suburbs were a mistake. tfw no walkable cities with dense urban centers.
If we had less sprawl we'd need less road length to begin with, and could keep what we have in decent shape. It's because we build sprawled to shit that the maintenance ends up costing 15x as much per resident's taxshare, which is impossible to cover the cost of without having like 80% tax rates, so the result is we get shitty potholes all over. Applies to all utilities like water (our pipes are corroding to hell and the water is being tainted by lack of maintenance), sewer, electric (lines go down every storm; putting them below ground would stop it but we're sprawled so 30x as much land area to cover, too expensive to dig them in), internet (our internet speeds blow ass), etc. All of this is a direct result of sprawl. A city of 100,000 residents at 10 sq miles versus a city of 100,000 at 100 sq miles... per resident's tax share, the larger one is 10x more expensive to maintain. That's what american urban planners overlooked when they okayed suburban centric car-centric growth models.
Also putting literal interstate highways through the MIDDLE of cities just to spite the poor neighborhoods (which are now all gentrified anyway with 2k rent and 98% white populations).
Our infrastructure is worse than Russia's. If we didn't build sprawled out low density cities to begin with, we could maintain what we have so it isn't brazil tier.
Again, this is about city-to-city comparisons, so don't start talking about rural kentucky. Why can't Tampa look like Milan? Why can't Pittsburgh look like Edinburgh?

Adam Lopez

As someone who lives in Pittsburgh; it seriously would take forever to walk anywhere. I always drive to the grocery store or really any store because everything is so far and inconvenient. I could take busses but they go through the same roads and so the traffic obviously takes awhile. Unless your directly in downtown, American cities barely even feel like cities, just more industrial suburbs spread out. Our infrastructure is trash and I hate how there’s ugly roads in basically every part of the city

Literally niggers. The CTA for instance could be great and is useful but It's a smelly homeless hotel in the winter on the two 24/7 lines. I work pretty early and some youth was trying to shake down some yuppie for his wallet on my car this morning. Got off and waited for the next train since my work is about as far south as I'd recommend any white person going and had a feeling he'd be coming at me as soon as all the other yuppies got off downtown.

Gonna agree with you big on that. Especially the "pod" layout of suburbia, where you have to go out to the one (two if you're lucky) entrance to your neighborhood, then all the way around the meta-block, just to get to a store on the corner of your neighborhood. Even if you want to walk you're fucked, because there's a fence behind businesses to keep the shitskins out, and the streets don't connect to keep people from using your street as a shortcut.

Also bad is that businesses below residential was completely outlawed from zoning for a long time, though it's been happening a bit for block apartments in the past 10-20 years.

Even our downtowns are pretty pedestrian inhospitable in a lot of places. Many cities don't even have a proper downtown at all.
