Perhaps cause the line is not finished yet





Once finished w'll welcom germans and chineese to come work in Morocco, everybody in the world is lazy except germans so intead of leting them go develope USA they will come to Morocco

If there was no germans there would be no NASA noor american high level industries they would still be using Steem boats

The german engeneer Diesel invented oil motor and deposited patent about it the poor was wrong this got him disapear untill now and have a gess which countries had the bigest steem boat parks in that period

No in USA all the trains are still Diesel perhaps to pay homage to this german engeneer

See California High Speed Rail. It's being build and should be completed by 2030. The problem in the USA is cheap petrol for cars and almost non-existent or poor public transport.

I see you are going with double deckers straight away. Have there been any studies on how many passengers will use the new line and also how many trains per day per direction are forecast for the early years of operation? How many of those TGV's have you ordered? I assume for the time being they will be exclusively for Tangier-Casablanca service, right?

Train capacity : 500 pax
Studies stands of 6 to 8 million passengers a year but i think it was a little overestimated, now this line is less than 3 million passengers but :

Now Tangier Kenitra with classic train : 3h15, Tangier Rabat about 4 Hours, Tangier Casablanca nearby 5 hours

By the hugh speed train Tangier Kenitra will take 50 minutes, Tangier Rabat 1h20, Tangier Casablanca 2h10'

Now there is 20 trains per day in the 2 sens. trains' service begin at 5 am ends at nearby 10 PM with the night train, there is a train in a same sens each 2h (2 trains for the 2 sens).

When the TGV enter service there will be 2 trains per hour 1 train each hour for same sens. So perhaps with the TGV there will be 40 trains per day cause many persons still take the Highway from Tangier to Rabat since it takes only 2 hours in stead of about 4h by the classic train.

The cargo is north of Cadiz (the famous spanish surfland city) Last postition 15 mins ago :



Perhaps it will be easy to steal some non official photos on arrival and during transfert : Tanger Med is so opened port no building to hide the transfert convoi noor the debarking operation.
