Bears are now very rare on Alps and Appennines, so they're protect.
Anyway, Seem said Slovakia and no Slovenia.

we had a thread on DLM Slovakia vs Slovenia, looks like it didn't accomplish anything.

Yeah, 400-500, sometimes they go on vacation to Italy. They don't hunt people, btw. Actually they're afraid of us.

He realized there's no train between Slovenia and Italy.

It is because Alps are much more affected by urbanisation than Carpathians, there are about 1000 bears in Slovakia and we even have these..

Seriously speaking, I think it's crazy that a such vital European rail link had been suppressed in Schengen times. It was the only rail link between south west and south east Europe, not just between I and SLO. Ironically there were better connections when there was the iron curtain. Trieste could be a main rail transit hub between west and east, but currently there is only a single railway line connecting the city to outside. And off course many buses departing toward the east. I think it's because countries such Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Hungary have an antiquate railway network but a growing modern motorway network that made intercity bus transit more competitive than trains. And in Italy the closure of less used railway lines or even single small stations within still used lines is a 50 years old tradition.

That's true, but AFAIK, that train wasn't empty at all. Also, train is more comfortable than bus. Do you think we could sue you for hindering free flow of people in EU? (like we were sued for vignettes)

well lots of eu railway connections need to catch up in next decades. regarding motorways, we might as well sue them for having that weird 'motorway' 360° turn at Fernetici. (joke)

The Slovenia-Italy trains were unprofitable, hence they were retired. But the rail link is there, any private operator wanting to give a try can do so.

I think if they link Gorizia Centrale and Nova Gorica stations they could have some SLO-IT trains...

It's useless a train between GO and NG, since it requires a long detour between the two stations. It's faster by foot
Anyway, a train connecting Venice with Budapest via TS, LJ and ZG would became useful because allow you to travel from Spain / southern France / Italy all the way by train to Belgrade, Bucharest, Athens, Istanbul, Moscow,...
However the TS - LJ route is still usable by freight trains.
Anyway, many local bus routes are unprofitable under a merely economical point of view but are kept because are a public service.

I meant building tracks between Gorizia Centrale and Nova Gorica, an underground tunnel

Key word: local.

International services are secondary in the order of priorities for transportation subsidies. Governments shouldn't subsidize international passenger public transit.
