Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
* That rail alliance, Railteam, compromises state raílways from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, and international carriers Thalys, Eurostar and NS Hispeed (daughter of the Dutch state railways for Amsterdam-Brussels services on the to be opened high-speed line). This is kind of a reincarnation of the half-dead TEE Rail Alliance project by the German, Austrian and Swiss railways, which led to some airline-style joint offering but faltered after the failure to jointly jointly order new trains. Hopefully it works out better this time. The plans include such copies of airline policy like "railmiles" for frequent travellers.
