Compared to existing Israeli train service it isnít?

100mph is high-speed enough given how long it takes to go by road or any other route unless you make regular use of helicopters to get to the airport.

Itís certainly no maglev like to PVG, but 100mph isnít a slow-speed train even as itís considerably slower than the Amtrak Acela service were the Acela to operate at 150mph pretty much the whole way.
