High-speed inter-city trains departing every hour. Train travel times halved. Cheaper tickets. These are some of alleged benefits of a new railway network all over southern Norway, proposed by a retired economist this week.

Reducing carbon emission by reducing air traffic in the area by 80 per cent is the main goal of the proposal, economist Didrik Seip told newspaper Aftenposten. He’s delivered a proposal about high-speed train travel to the state agency in charge of Norway’s railroad infrastructure, Jernbaneverket.
