the more I come to the sad conclusions that:

  1. the benefits of rail are truly massive
  2. but they are complex to prove and not obvious at all to demonstrate

thus, politicians will have a hard time going for these, and the private sector won't bother.

This is where having technocrats in charge can do wonders...
