The Good, The Bad, and the Crazy!

From Wired.com, crazy ideas in Michigan:
Michigan Could Be Home To Maglev Superhighway

Lawmakers in Michigan are considering plans to build a high-speed, hydrogen-powered maglev rail line that would carry people between Detroit and Lansing using specially built cars, buses, and trucks...

Talk about scalability! All the problems of roads, maglev, monorail, cetc. combined!

This is the only good part, a smart grid-ish combined network incorporated in the trackway:
...but will spin off enough surplus energy to power municipal sewer and water, communication, and security systems, and its tracks can be used to house conduit clusters of utility lines and fiber optic cables...

Still crazy though, when real HSR would be a better idea.
