    Excellent info!
    On of the endless arguments raised against expanding US and/or Ohio intercity rail passenger service is that, allegedly, both lack sufficient population density to support rail. It thus might be useful to add a tabulation of population density in European countries and US states, sorted by density so it is easy to document the fallacy of the too-low density claim.
