Well, at least the Eurasian section of the world. China is negotiating with the rest of Europe for a deal that would allow connections between Asia and Europe. Great. If this happens, it will signify a new era of massive building of rail. The benefits are just too large to ignore anymore.

Railway passengers will be able to travel from King's Cross to Beijing in just two days on a journey that would be almost as fast as by airplane under ambitious new plans from the Chinese.
China is in negotiations to build a high-speed rail network to India and Europe with trains capable of running at more than 321 kph within the next 10 years.
