Description of the Eastern Trunk
DEHART @TUBETRANSPORT Eastern Tube Trunk The Eastern Tube Trunk will likely be constructed east of the Appalachian spine. The Eastern Trunk houses point to point tubes for BOS, EWR, PHL, IAD, ORF, CLT and connects directly into the Atlanta Transfer Hub. The trunk will initially contain 12 Tubes running (4) wide and (3) high with the capability to add tube sets across the top after initial construction. CLT will likely have 3 to 4 dedicated tubes into the Atlanta Transfer Hub to facilitate major hub operations out of CLT. There will be a regional track line on each side of the trunk servicing the lower market airports. The regional line will run the full length of the eastern tube trunk from BOS to ATL except that it will break off prior to the Atlanta Transfer Hub and proceed directly to ramp space at ATL. The regional line will provide egress to every tube access airport along the entire trunk. This will enable medium range transport operations between New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington without the necessity to enter the longer range tubes. Remember that regional transport lines do not require decompression which make them easier to access, but, have the expense of slower speeds enroute. The major airline companies will determine the actual configurations of this model during planning phases. This model is based on the TTS concept originators experience with air traffic operations on the east coast.
