Most efficient hypothetical US/Canada rail network linking all important cities

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Full resolution:  https://media.npr.org/assets/img/2021/04/05/proposed_amtrak_routes_april_2_2021_v4_custom-720fe00d7655d42e2a1aa70542d832af3aaade68.jpg

Q: My city isn't on the list.
A:  Then it's not really important, now is it?

Q:  What about the Canadian cities of Calgary, Ottawa, and Edmonton?
A:  Those are fictional.

Q: FFS, man. Ottawa isn't even very far from Montreal and it's much more populated than Vancouver, eh?
A:  Ottawa is not a real city, but a pit straight to the depths of hell where all Canada geese spawn from like LOTR orcs.

Q: Why do you hate South Dakota?
A:  They know what they did.
One of the things I will never forgive John Kasich for is killing the 3C high speed rail project connecting Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati.  I mean, there are many things I won't forgive him for, but that's one of the big ones.

C = 186000miles/second.  3C =558000miles/sec. Or does that mean C^3? 10,378,800,000/sec.

Either way, way to fast for most Ohioans. Rob Dyrdek, maybe.

I see you've never been on an interstate in Ohio.  :D

A few years back, and the back up for a construction site was several miles long in either direction. Slo and NoGo all the way.

Well, yeah, there's a lot of that, too... the unofficial state tree is the Orange Traffic Barrel.

Great-eared nightjar (not to be confused with the satanic nightjar, E. diabolicus, which I assume is the same thing but with devil horns)
