That would be valid if you were talking about a simple railway from one side of the country to the other, but that wouldn't be terribly useful with the number and spread of cities in the United States. So what if I could take a high-speed train from New York City to Los Angeles (a straight-line distance of ~3933km, which would take over 9 hours even at the maximum speed of the Shanghai maglev) if I had to then get on a slower train to San Francisco, or Phoenix, or Seattle? The journey would still take far longer than an airplane.
