The reports from France could not be better. Here is the latest item of interest from The Connexion.
THE ROUTE of a new high-speed rail link across the South-east will pass through Marseilles and Toulon on its way to Nice.
The route will make it possible to reach Paris from Nice in 3hrs 50mins compared to 5hrs 25mins at present.
Those hopeless French morons! Don’t they know that Paris is 387 miles fron Nice and that is far too long a trip by high speed rail? Those buffoons! If only they had some tried and true American know how, they would already know that what they are planning is impossible! French cities are just too far apart. I mean, don’t misunderstand, high speed rail is a sweet childish dream, but you can’t expect to actually construct high speed rial lines because there’s always a reason why not. It just won’t work. End of story.
