its sad to see Libya go in the drain this way. I was in Libya in 2009. and back then before the fall of Qaddafi , Libya was the most wealthy nation in Africa(in GDP per capital terms), and had almost every basic living items citizens needs. some even had unemployment benefits(which is almost unheard of in Africa). In fact there were Hundreds if not Millions of Africans migrants who came to Libya for a better life, and funny enough most of them came from so called 'democratic countries'. I was also surprise to see that the french speaking African countries i visited, Qaddafi was so popular there, i barely saw anybody who didn't like him, they kept talking about all the investment and help he has been providing to the poorer African countries neighboring Libya like: Niger, Cameroon, Chad,Mauritania Senegal etc). This is one of the reason that i tend to believe those who said his toppling was planned and organized by external forces who are after the resources/Geo strategic interests of Libya. I really sad for my African brethren's. One of it most prosperous/independent country has now turned into a warlord/Al Qaeda state were lawlessness is rampant. Good save Africa.
coming to the topic, yes its true i don't think Libya needs a high speed rail at the moment. its a luxury the country doesnt need at the moment(it will have been more appropriate pre-Qaddafi) . The country needs to first solve its security issues and stability.

They should start by extending the tracks to the nearest maintenance depot, because given the build quality of the other IC4 sets, it's going to spend a lot of time there.
