Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Colman once surmised, and I paraphrase, that disasters generally occur because a number of things simultaneously go wrong.

This seems a case of flawed design with horrendous results. I'm mostly shocked to find out that there exist (parts of) high-speed rail routes left without ERTMS, particularly those high-speed rails that are fairly new.

Thanks for these updates.

It's a rule of thumb I learned caving: it's the third thing to go wrong that kills you. I'm pretty sure it's a widely used rule.

When several things have already gone wrong by design you're asking for trouble.
