Technically: that means Russia has to build 1435mm-railways? Otherwise a lot of time would be lost at the Eastern border of Poland and somewhere between Kazakhstan and Mongolia. But the route via Russia is a logic one considering the Great Circle: via the south travel is longer because of the Earth's curvature, if not for devastation after wars.

Would never have guessed that this would ever play a role in rain travel though
Relieving the pressure on Dutch housing market: we need more apartments and taller apartment buildings, no single-family dwellings anymore!

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!

It would be very interesting for everyone if China builds a standard gauge line for Kazakhstan, but HSR plans in Russia, although the money and trains will be Chinese, are with their own gauge.

They could also put a gauge changer and trains of variable gauge, there is already one Moscow-Berlin.
