Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been reading your rail blog for some time now and it always have been interesting. Infrastructures are so important and get so little focus. In rail for example, everybody focus on the highest train on tracks but never or so little to those electrical networks and steel and concrete paved railways designed to last at least a hundred years.

This website needs a DoDo to cover other major infrastructure news: electrical networks, marine, automobile, power generation, engines in general which are having tremendous efficiency progresses, for example. It will save me a lot of time to track these subjects when I have some time to catch up.

A little off your usual topic, rail in EU, but there are some fascinating insights in the rail business in the US especially infrastructure which is in a dire state. The ASCE made a great report on it (a part of a full roundup on every major infrastructure in America) : <a href="http://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/sites/default/files/RC2009_rail.pdf">http://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/sites/default/files/RC2009_rail.pdf</a>

Thanks for your work, please continue!

Welcome, Rouget!

Rail stuff on ET is collected in the Train Blogging series.

For power generation (and to some extent electricity networks), the Wind Power series contains a lot of material.

Thanks for the welcome.

It looks like though that the RSS feed is broken or outated: I've tried to add it but the new messages weren't there. Any possible fix?

It's broken and a fix looks unlikely. Sorry.
