Convert old unused rail line to a testbed hyperloop system in Boston

Using older rail lines to act as the future lines for the Hyperloop. Boston will be doing it, but using a self propelled diesel locomotive seems a bit crazy… its a three mile line. They should test out a new tech…. like a small hyperloop…

Also, the name of the locomotive is a Colorado Railcar. Seriously, a ” Colorado Railcar” should be the name a hyperloop pod!

The commenters in both articles balk at the use of a diesel locomotive for such a short distance. Unfortunently, Boston wants to keep costs down… even though they will make so much money of tickets. This is a great opportunity to test out cutting edge tech and will make Boston much more competitive. But let’s first do it in Colorado!
