Train Power

Train Power -- Lucius Chiaraviglio writes in regard to this quote from TidBITS-106:

But then, as someone recently said on the net, "there are few other media that can beat the bandwidth of a truck full of CD-ROMs."

"As a serious railway proponent I am obliged to point out the following: No media (on land, anyway) can beat the bandwidth of a train full of CD-ROMs." :-)
