You Spanish can keep the patos, more Velaros for everyone else .

Seriously, though, the massive success of the Madrid-Barcelona line has been nice for those of us in California because it is a very convincing argument for HSR (as Spain and CA have similar demographics/ geography) thus giving us yet example to fight the opposition.

380km/h would be amazing in commercial service, though i doubt they'd run it that fast (more wear, higher operating/maintanance costs), 330km/h seems more realistic. i just wish they'd get more velaros, they're definatly my favorite trains design wise.

i hope california decides on the velaro too! although i see AGV being more likely
