It seems the reason rail lines to small cities work in Europe & Asia is because of density. Not population; density.
Rail works to small cities because you don’t need a car to get around, and thus car ownership is much lower.
If you have cars, highways, & suburbs, then trains make less sense.
Someday, as the US weans itself off of cars, and continues to build denser areas, and people stop driving cars everywhere, then trains to small cities make sense.
