Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For novices, but with technology backgrounds, this is a fascinating and detailed diary of a very complex subject.  Stellar, DoDo.  Hope I make the time to give it more time.

As a general question; how readable is this diary (and my more detailed train diaries in general)? I am trying to 'outsource' too much specifics and codenames into paragraphs and image captions, but am not sure how easily readers can get through it.

I read through this one in no time, but that's partially because it's on a topic I'm very interested in (industrial policy and globalisation). In general you are very readable, too, though.

Erm, I meant: into parantheses and image captions...

I know next to nothing about trains, except that I do love them and am interested in modern developments, mostly for nostalgic reasons being an American, but I found the article very interesting and quite readable.
