Rail/energy project to run on stainless

United Steel Workers of America (USWA) have endorsed assistance to build a USA-wide rapid transit rail system made of stainless steel called “The Interstate Traveler Project”, based in Michigan. In response to a letter transmitted to Leo Gerard, President of the USWA, Harry E. Lester, Director of USWA District 2 in Taylor, Michigan, penned his letter of support for the Interstate Traveler Project as an opportunity to revitalise the US steel industry. The Interstate Traveler Project integrates rail rapid transit with an energy network using solar-powered hydrogen and fuel cell technology, with near-zero environmental impact. It would consume millions of tons of stainless steel. It is the brainchild of the Interstate Traveler Company LLC, which exists to provide the least expensive and most universal form of public conduit to move people via maglev technology, and simultaneously provide structural conduit for the distribution of electricity, potable water, liquid waste, fibre optics, hydrogen, and where applicable, other liquid and vapour-based fuels. Necessary municipal utilities are bundled into a “conduit cluster” providing full integration of a solar-powered hydrogen production and distribution network.
