Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But it is also useful to construct infrastructure which shifts traffic from jet and internal combustion engines to electric trains gradually and before energy becomes too expensive. Because while running slow trains on high speed tracks is an inefficient use of the capital invested in those high speed tracks, I am willing to bet that it is preferable to having to crash build a whole new infrastructure when liquid fuel starts becoming prohibitively expensive.
