Back again ( thanks!).

Btw, National Express (ALSA) in the UK operates under the c2c moniker, and runs the services from London-Fenchurch Street for Basildon, Southend and Grays.
In 2010, it was named the most punctual railway service in the UK.
They´ve been shortlisted to bid for the Crossrail operation.

National Express also run the Midland Metro (the trams in Birmingham).

Some time ago I've read that Spain was planning to build rail test centre which should feature test track loop for high speed. Dos building of such centre really started or it was cancelled due to austerity measures?

I was cancelled due to austerity, but there have been some recent news about the reactivation of the test track loop in Antequera.

Here you have the specific thread on the Spanish forum: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1355905&page=5

Last news are in the post #88 (March 31st) where the Spanish Ministry of Public Works will launch a new tendering process as the last one remained null and void as any company bid for it. So, the project keeps active by now, probably looking for better conditions for bidding companies.
