Quantity, yes, but primarily quality.
Regrettfully current railway standards are not optimal, even worse, “cementing”.
Devastatingly, now robustness, resiliency and redundancy, the urgently requested, is missing.
(“Long, heavy” trains is not sustainable, etc. Electrification has to be redundant, etc., etc.)
At “our” hemisphere, for added capacity and utilisation of existing, a decisive upgrading of infrastructure, a shift, now should start!
