I travelled Copenhagen-Hamburg last summer and this 335 km distance is at the moment a very slow ride with some rundown sections. The bridge over Storström need to be replaced. I think there recently were some delays because of it.

Scandinavia has a bit complicated geography and a small population, which make long distance high speed rail unnecessary.

The train derailed was running at 135 km/h instead of the 70 km/h allowed on this stretch.

The tests have begun again since last monday. The final conclusion is that the train suffered no malfunction and that the sole reason for the accident was the speed, 135km/h against a maximum of 70km/h for that section. According to Stadler the trains should be allowed to incorporate on normal services already by next month.

I'm curious how did this happen, as a HSR system I assume it gets speed indication from the ATC thus exceeding the speed limit should be detected and corrected by the computer. Unless they didn't correctly register the speed limit for that section in the computer.

It's not a HSR system we're talking about. These trains are intended for suburban and regional services, the long distance version is part of an option that has not been called yet.
This was a test ride on a section of track that obviously didn't have ATC. The driver was responsible for respecting the speed limit, and didn't.

- Tregere InterCity spiller liten rolle

It has a slight nominal role for this discussion. The 200 km/h Intercity trains would bare scrape in under the definition of high-speed, the only high-speed for this generation in Norway. Speedwise it should be sufficient for the intercity region, as long as they can deliver the service...

Flytoget vil kjøpe nye tog

a booming country, an expanding airport and a high-speed line extension into Hedmark will require higher capacity and new trains, but not higher speeds unfortunately on Norway's main corridor

they're looking at Siemens and Bombardier

Very interesting video about the construction of the new underground station in Holmestrand. Unfortunately only in Norwegian, even though they uploaded two copies where on of them had English headline. I'll update the thread if they upload the English version

Some facts:
Pass-through track allowing the trains a speed of 250kph. 4 tracks in total and platforms on the outer sides.
The hall will be 18m high, 35m wide and 250m long. Making it almost 9000 square meters
Geological challenges.

While I'm not so in love with concrete as a decorative element, concrete+wood can be kind of nice.

Wouldn't it make sense to have a third entrance, an elevator going up to the hill above?

A 80 meter tall lift is also being built both for train passengers aswell as a shortcut for locals.
