Read the article. It says 4000km on the russian side. 2000km on the american side. Just to connect the tunnel to the rest of the rail system.

The border between US and Canada is incredibly easy to get through. Its no where near as complicated as Mexico-US.

Rail is still by FAR the cheapest way to transport freight. I am all for this idea since it would help Canada, US, and Russia. Think of how many thousands of jobs it would create over the next 2 decades.

Sir don't be an AppleHOLE. You neglect all of Russia's participation in advanced dickery that causes friction between the two, ignoring the fact that no one wants the US and Russia to get along. At least I don't. We can have two belligerent nations using their respective hegemonic powers to force their neighbors into putting up with their crap or two belligerent nations using their combine hegemonic powers to force everyone to put up with a unified front of bullcrap. I would rather have the Russian and American governments chasing one another around calling each other dicks than working together telling everyone else they are dicks.

This is actually not that feasible considering the extremely cold temps in the Bering sea. Due to just this reason construction time will be increased a lot in time(Like said on the article 10-15 years time, that's more than twice the time it took to build the Channel Tunnel). Since you'll likely work about six months a year during feasible conditions. It also economically unfeasible because those two regions of the countries hardly have much population unlike the case in the U.K. and France where there's actually a lot of traffic flow to keep it economically feasible. Without a decent amount of traffic flow after building it like throwing money down the drain with a debt to pay. Therefore I think they should just stick with sea shipping or air. Imagine how much time it would take to pay the debt back if there aren't enough traffic flowing...

Unless they use some sort of high speed train, it'd take a weekend to get there.

That's true, also I wonder with these huge distances if they need some kind of power stations at midpoints throughout the tunnel.

How about we build the electric choochoo I voted yes on 3 years ago here in CA. And spread that across the nation.

I saw something like this on Science Channel. Ingenious way the figured how to run trains on two different track systems: use both axle/wheel sets.

I'm waiting for the 5k mph, vacuum, super mag-lev Atlantic train
