Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The new Vienna station is certainly more worthwhile and easier to construct. Tracks will essentially stay in place, no 66km of tunneling. Two terminus stations that lie 'back to back' are transformed into a single through-station. Makes sense.

Unfortunately, there are the same marketing slogans (at least as transmitted by the know-nothing media (German tagesschau)): "removing the dead end", "Center of Europe", "Bahnhofs-City", "Paris-Bratislava", "Danzig-Adria", and as a special twist "Middle Germany - Athens - Black Sea". Who are those people kidding?

Schengen is toast!
