How incredible would it be to take a train out of Rockford that didn't take hours and hours to get to your destination?

If this proposal becomes a reality, a bullet train flying out of a Rockford station could be in the cards.

Two trains coming out of Rockford with final destinations being in Portland, Maine and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

It looks like the train would stop in Chicago, Washington D.C. and New York City. Those are just a few destinations on the map.

It looks like there is a train out of Chicago that you could take to Jacksonville, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina too.

Keep in mind, this is only a Reddit proposal. I would love to see it get put in front of the right people to see if they can make this happen.

Who wouldn't love to see a 300 MPH train soaring in and out of Rockford on a daily basis?
