  1. As Donald Fagen said on the song IGY from his album the Nightfly – about a young boy in the 1950s dreaming of the future:

    “The future looks bright:

    On that train all graphite and glitter
    Undersea by rail
    90 minutes from New York to Paris
    Well by ’76 we’ll be A.O.K.

    What a beautiful world this will be
    What a glorious time to be free”


  2. I guess this didn’t make it past the drawing board? Can’t say I’ve ever seen one in operation …


  3. I think the idea was adapted for the shuffle craft on the Star Ship Enterprise ……….. *beaming and looking spotty*
