Good news if it comes to fruition – German HS trains (200mph) approved for Channel Tunnel will open routes eastward.

Also good for competition.

As an aside, apparently the UK could soon gain the mantle of becoming Europe’s second largest producer of cars. One hopes as rail travel is on the increase we see a corresponding growth in manufacturing in rail related industries – a sector the UK once held global leadership in.
