Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But the X-2[000] service in Starvid's home country Sweden is also such a thing.

Yes, and it's a disgrace. Not that it's a bad train, not at all, but not having a real high speed train running on dedicated tracks makes me feel like I'm living in a third world country.

There is a mostly dormant project called the European Corridor that would take care of that, but it's unlikely to happen this side of 2025.

It's supposed to cost about 8-10 billion euros. Half of that being Swedish money, and the other half being German and Danish.

The EU is ready to pay quite a big part of the Denmark-Germany bridge over Fehmarn Belt.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
