Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That proves to me something I always claimed: ETCS is something that should never have been done.

Instead, we should have settled on LZB and TVM-430 and be done with that (obviously, settling on one system would be impossible - national prestige and all that).

Looking at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twqGb55DVyA and reading the Wikipedia entry, I find ridiculous that billions of Euros were spent on a new system that still doesn't approach that functionality.

High-speed trains on wireless data? No, thanks!
