I find mistakes in Spanish rails.

Some of black ones are closed since twenty years ago or more.

The green ones have just a different wide, but are operating every day.

Apparently green is more like narrow gauge railways than heritage railways. I doubt that companies like RhB in Switzerland or Mariazellerbahn in Austria would qualify as "heritage". Same is true for the narrow gauge lines in Greece ans other networks in Switzerland e. g.

Glad to see the new addition to the TGV system but the Turkish ones are missing. Not only is there a section already working with over 250 km/h but there is work going on in the other lines as well.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say on the matter:

But they are worth mentioning (and the future Casablanca-Tangeri line, too).

On the other hand I don't see the point of showing some other lines in black.

I don't see the point, anyway there are some lines used by non-high speed trains (like the Spanish part of Madrid-Lisbon) and some non HS lines used by TGV in France are not shown.

1. They state that there is a small part near Portugal board with V=200, so the entire service are shown.
2. They just doesn't know about these lines.

Moscow - Saint Petersburg is incorrect

not exact, but close
Moscow - Kryukovo - 140/160 kmph (40 km)
Kryukovo - Okulovka - 200 kmph (365 km) with 100-140 kmph limits in few towns and cities
Okulovka - 200 km - 220/250 kmph (40 km)
200 km - Kolpino - 200 kmph (180 km) with 140 kmph limits in few towns
Kolpino - Saint Petersburg - 120/160 kmph (20 km)
