MISC | Rail Maps

The question says it all. TGVweb has one of the best, unfortunately it's from April 2001, and doesn't show LGV Est, Rhin-Rhone, Perpignan-Figueres, or any German or Spanish lines.



There was also one annotated in German on Wikipedia, but I can't find it any more. Does anybody have any decent, up-to-date maps?

I can speak for Czech and Slovakia railway (part of TransEuro railway)
currently Czech has railway speed from Prague to Bratislava 160km/h Pedndolino train and Prague to Ostrava also Pendolino train,
currently Slovak building 160 km/h track from Bratislava to Kosice (4more years to be complete)= and then continue to Kiyv(Kiev)=Ukraine

High speed 300km/h (Berlin, Prague, Brno, Wien, Bratislava ...possibly to Budapest)

cost 8 bilion dolars (for Czech rep. area)
completed to 2016-2020

What is the status of the LGV Est line? the French map above indicates it was scheduled for completion 2006[ the european map indicates it was 'in service or under construction".

What is the minimum average speed to classify a track as a high speed track?

The high speed section goes between Nancy and Metz but TGV will go in Strasbourg and maybe in Germany at Frankfurt.

I have found out that there is no standard definition of "high speed rail". Minimum speed of highspeed rails seem to vary with 160km/h, 200km/h, 250km/h.
Considering that the rail line Hamburg-Berlin was upgraded in 2004 for speeds of 230km/h, it would qualify as highspeed rail in two of the cases above (the german railway company classifies this track as a highspeed rail). So the map Dee Hinnov showed us is probably incorrect.

Quoting from Wikipedia:

"The construction of the new line has been split into two phases:

* from Vaires-sur-Marne (Seine-et-Marne) near Paris to Baudrecourt (Moselle), where it joins the conventional Metz-Saarbrücken and Metz-Strasbourg lines, due to open June 2007;
* from Baudrecourt to Vendenheim (Bas-Rhin) near Strasbourg, expected around 2010. Before then, TGV will run at normal speed (160 km/h) between these two cities via the existing Metz-Strasbourg line."

The first section is 300 km long, the second 106.

Green on that list isn't "wishful thinking" I think. A lot of the lines that are coloured green are already at relatively high speeds of around 200 km/h.

For Italy there are several 'mistakes': Roma-Napoli HS is operational and Milano-Torino sis under construction (and in part operational, between Torino and Novara, just 50 km from Milan city center)

Turin-Milan-Naples nearly or yet completed (maybe open in 2009)
Paris-Metz-Strasbourg opens to Metz next June
Milan-Zürich, not really HS, partly under construction
London-Eurotunnel nearly completed (opens this year)
Bruxelles-Amsterdam under construction
Lyon-Turin-Milan...nobody knows!
