Economist ran this piece last week on the relatively sorry state of trans-European rail traffic:

https://www.economist.co...replace-planes-in-europe

Given the ambitions of EU, much improvement will be needed. Perhaps my grandchildren can enjoy high-speed rail traffic across the continent.

The link works, but the article is behind a paywall so you can't read all of it.

But there are numerous ways around paywalls, a google search will give some tips - not that I'm encouraging nefarious behaviour of course Woot

In the Colonies, We have a sum total of NOTHING BUT NOTHING!Cursing

1/2 of our republic does not recognize rail transportation as being the green of our future. Love
