Very interesting. Would be good to include a comparison of the 'terminal infrastructure' too - parking for cars or trains, plus stations etc. Then you could get into wait and acceleration times (how longs spent waiting for a train at 0 mph, versus get in your car and go), and what you do if the train doesn't go where you want to, or if the load isn't 15kph, but 15ph. I am amazed at the money spent on roads versus rail, which for some bizzare reason is supposed to be self-funding (at least Amtrak is).
