China Railways Scandal Widens, Raising Criticism – NYTimes.com

Ah, ha! Told ya’ so! (only being sarcastic)

A widening probe into corruption in China’s powerful Railways Ministry is raising questions over the scale and pace of its multibillion-dollar drive to build costly high-speed railways, though it is unlikely to derail the program.

Along with concerns over financing and other issues, at least one proposal for scaling down the showcase program is due to be presented to a top advisory group meeting in Beijing this week during the annual session of China’s National People’s Congress, a state media report said Wednesday.

What this story is actually saying, I think, is that there is a case to be made for building and improving conventional passenger rail service. But what do I know anyway?
