Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So with 25% capacity factor (more typical on land) and two 10MW trains, you have to place a 2MW turbine every 2.5 kilometres along the high-speed line. If there would be no constraints due to built-up areas, natural reserves, wind potential and non-rail-related wind farms within half a kilometre of the line, you could have five times as much.
