Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Would re-introducing guards vans (cabooses ?) and split braking make a difference ?

I read somewhere that rail unions insist on 3 people in the engine cab, which really hits the economics and mandated the long trains. Britain makes do with one or two and so can have a lot of short frieght trians, which are easier to manage.
