Futuristic High-Speed Tube Travel

I liked this idea better when it was first invented…in the 19th century, or the numerous times it was mentioned in Science Fiction, mostly in Golden Age stories. Evacuated tube travel seems to have fallen out of fashion in SF in the '60s and '70s, replaced by suborbital transport, for obvious reasons. The promise of tube trains deserves to be tied with the flying car meme for fizzled hype.
