1960s Muscle Car–Inspired Train Could Be a Beautiful High-Speed Train in Australia

 

The Aussies are making everyone else look slower, older, and clunkier with the design for a new muscle train between its main cities. The train would move at a top speed of 250 mph. It would make the 545-mile journey between Sydney and Melbourne in just over two hours. Today’s current trains are limited to just 100 mph.

What Public Transportation Should Be, Could Be

Australia-based international design firm HASSEL designed this high-speed train to lend a quick means of clean transportation to some of the 8 million-plus people who travel between Australia’s two largest cities regularly.
 

 
Who is not tired of claustrophobic drives into and out of the city with 6, 8, 10, and in some cases (such as this one) 16-lane highways and endless traffic? No one enjoys this.

Instead, imagine traveling hone while relaxing with a book, apple, or quick shut-eye instead of feeling claustrophobic in stop, go, stop lanes on highways. Imagine traveling in what seems like the speed of light on a clean muscle train.

This would be a double-decker train concept that could revolutionize the way Aussies travel, and all of us should follow suit.
