solar bullet train

It was a big, but amusing, surprise to stumble on the link to your solar bullet model today.
The reason? I am the campaign manager and we are organizing the effort to bring a very real, very high speed, solar-powered bullet train to the "Sun Corridor" between Tucson and Phoenix, AZ. Thus it was a very large grin to find out that a truly solar powered model already exists!
I am tempted to blog about that (news.solarbullet.org) with some kind of teasing headline like "world's first solar bullet train already operational."
In all events, it was fun to find this product exists!
