Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would compare and contrast a train travel along the Rhine valley between Cologne and Frankfurt (scenery upon scenery) to one along the new high-speed line between the two (some nice short views of mountains and valleys, but in no small part sound barriers -- or tunnels), maybe even stops along the way for the first. (The same for car drivers: compare a travel along an old country road to one along a highway.) While I am not against high-speed rail (and until there is air travel, I won't accept arguments against them based on our age of haste), I do see where the argument comes from.
