Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Looks kinda sad, doesn't it? They've had to reduce the speed from 70 to 40 km/h. The track is used by trains carrying wood to a paper mill, nine trains a day. The mine will ship 5000 tonnes of ore every day, on four trains a day. Investments are needed. Until they arrive we'll use hordes of heavy trucks which will not only be much more expensive for us, but also a nuissance to people living in the area, an environmental problem and will be bad for the local roads.

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