One of the major failings of HSR by its proponents is the concept of it as a "commuter" service, allowing people to move to the regions, living further away from their employment in the capital cities ...

Diesel engines on trains take a lot of diesel just to start. If the train was in the suburban network for just a couple of hours is ...

It's totally unrealistic and I can't see how it can be enforced, especially on trains.  You can imagine the frustration for commuters on inner city stations and at bus stops who just can't get on a tr ...

We're just going over old ground here.  HSR may well be viable in the longer term, but certainly isn't in the immediate term having regard to the cost.  In any event, even if it were to be fast tracke ...

The T1 isn't straight until you get we ...

The D sets actually have a max operational speed of 130km/h, same as the OSCARs. They test them up to 143km/h (10% above max).
