Planes v Trains

Looks like trains are making a comeback. In the northeast corridor Amtrak is making a stand as noted in the New York Times article. The security hassles and weather challenges have made trains more appealing, plus the added amenities of dining car and WiFi. The same has happened in Taiwan where high speed trains have impacted the air travel within the island country. I just got off of a standing room only caltrain too which I wonder if it is being driven (no pun intended) by the recent refinery fire driving gas prices up.
