It took me a little while to get this, but thanks to the explanation at Kottke, it makes sense. The train never stops, thus saving time and the energy normally used to slow and re-accelerate. A mere 5 minute stop per station would result in a total loss of 5 minutes x 30 stations or 2.5 hours of train journey time.
