Around the World in Two Days

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. With an ever-growing network in Europe, Asia, and now the US it can only be so long until Canada plays catch-up.

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.

  1. I want to bring back Herman Sörgel’s plan to dam the whole of the Mediterranian sea too but danmed economics get in the way of all the fun stuff.
