Maybe the decoration of this train is not as "pop" as new TGV interior, but it has got T.V. and radio in all classes!

Yeah that's cool. Though, I was wondering what do they broadcast?
In France we can't imagine having this because in the TGV everybody is listening to his own MP3 player, working or playing on his laptop, with PSP and that kind of stuff.

Not in regular service, but it's pretty fast for a regional train. No wonder they have a real high speed version of this train in China, I bet the tests runs were done for these Chinese trains.

The constantly developing European HSL network is a wonderful thing and it's pleasing that at long last Britain has joined up (even if it is only a small section). Hopefully in the UK we can get the rest of the country connected to the HSL network at some point and make journies to Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands much more attractive by rail.

On that matter I would really like to see Thalys include the UK as part of it's network.

The downside is that much of the UK network has a restrictive loading gauge and that imo needs to change. It is ridiculous that in this day and age we need trains that are much smaller then what our neighbours are using.

Sorry about this
It was not about the new train but the platform
The new train is great not the best design but it is good.

I find the ICE 3 the best of all; it's design is great... I's probably going to be used in the first argentine HSL between Buenos Aires and Rosario (about 320 km)

Iirc it was actually for a planned new high-speed train for Sweden. Our current almost-HSR the X2000 is already over 15 years old, so we need a new one within 10 years time...

Gents, I will be doing some traveling in May throughout Europe. I am writing to see what suggestions or advice you might have. No tickets have been purchased yet. The rail portion of my travels is proposed to be spread over a number of days on the following routes/services:

York to London (GNER)
London to Brussels (Eurostar)
Brussels to Cologne (Thalys)
Cologne to Frankfurt (ICE - old line)
Frankfurt to Cologne (ICE - new line)
Cologne to Paris (Thalys)

I appreciate any help you might offer.

I think it is 1435, but I'm not 100% sure. I´m checking it...

It's on its way. Paris is a central node from where you can go to Germany (to be extended to Eastern Europe), to the UK via Belgium, the Netherlands, Swizerland, to Southern France (to be extended to Spain, and to Italy: the tunnel of the Lyon-Torino high speed line will soon become reality): you just have to choose the TGV's colour you want:

Thalys


Eurostar

Not so sure, there is a really strong opposition. On the Italian side, the concerned valley's population especially. They obliged the construction companies to remove the "yards" they started to build.

What are their concerns about?

They fear that the tunnel will be underutilized, fear of the presence of asbestos and uranium, fear of the traffic generated by trucks during the construction, and that in Italy railway infrastructure is undersized comparing to the tunnel.

Even if sometimes a valid argument is said, usually their arguments are wrong, being NIMBY-style, if not even "BANANA". There is an interesting PDF with answers to all that fears, but unfortunately I thing it exists only in Italian: http://www.ltf-sas.com/pages/articles.php?art_id=350

The site, however, is available also in English: http://www.ltf-sas.com/
