Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ok, so you need 30MW nominal power to run a TGV or ICE on wind. That's a windfarm 750m in radius. If you want to have one train in each direction every half hour, you will have one train on every 75Km of track. So a 750m-radius windfarm for each 75Km of track... Doesn't seem that bad.
