The Northeast Maglev, a company that hopes to construct a high-speed, magnetic-levitation rail system that links Washington, D.C., and New York City, has enlisted business and political leaders to lobby for the project. The line would take passengers from Washington to New York City in an hour, and from Washington to Baltimore in 15 minutes, at 311 mph. The cost has not been revealed, but the Washington-Baltimore leg is estimated to cost at least $10 billion.
