High-speed rail development at home may be faltering, but for the overseas arm of Britain’s infrastructure agency, it’s a different story. Network Rail Consulting Inc, has been awarded a $73.2m (£57.5m, €66.7m) contract to provide systems engineering services to California’s High-Speed Rail Program. With construction under way, Network Rail Consulting Inc. will directly support the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s Rail and Operations Delivery Branch in a partner role through to May 2029.

US rail freight, big business there, however should be exported to Europe!
(Axial load above STAX32 and redundancy visavi power, etc., now Europe has to learn from!
Robustness, thus resiliency and redundancy, now devastatingly missing at railways, our most vulnerable mode…, neither is sustainable!)
It is 2024 now and 70 years have passed since TOYOTA Case taught Globe about JIT and On Demand…
Advantage of Europe, nearness to Market (goal, of EU…) no longer may be wasted!
