Until this year I thought the train was the transportation of the past.

But trains are the cheapest form of long-range transport on land as they are electric that don’t need heavy batteries.
The largest competitor to the train is the ship.
Ships can carry lots and lots of containers and don’t need any kind of road maintenance.
The only two disadvantages of ships are that they are slow moving and the fact that they can only be cheaper when the cost of gasoline/diesel/bunker fuel remains low.

Gasoline? I thought large ships run on diesel?

Either way, both come from crude oil so I guess it doesn’t matter that much.

diesel

Sorry diesel or bunker fuel.
Either way, it all comes down to oil.

Just being curious, what did you think last year would be the transportation of the future, and why?

The dominant transportation of today, ever larger container ships.

They can carry more than any other vehicle by far and don’t need to pay for road maintenance. Not to mention, you don’t need to cross in-between-nations borders that might ask for exuberant custom fees, go into civil war, go to war with you, etc.

Also, China’s newer high speed tracks are all built to allow top speeds of 400 kph or higher, whereas lines, even new ones, in Europe often cap out at speeds in the 300s, with 400 tracks being less common.

Yup, they’re upgrading existing tracks to higher top speed as well.

To be fair, the US does have two high speed rail lines:

  1. That dumb Acela Express thing (federal government project!) that goes slightly faster than a normal freight train, and

  2. That bit of track in California connecting nowhere to nowhere. It’s about a hundred miles long, and took something like fifteen years to build.

Poland have few hundred km of “high” speed rail, mostly going 150km/h, rarily up to 200. Trains are the variations of the italian Pendolino, ironically called “pierdolino” due to large amount of fuckups and corruption every big program in Poland inevitably involves.

That’s still faster than the fastest train in the United States.

Honestly, size and resources are the only reason the US hasn’t collapsed yet. It’s badly-run even by the standard of modern capitalist nations.

California has a highway system that was efficient back when it was built.
