They certainly getting their moneys worth from these moulds.

Every time I read storys like this it pisses me off that we don't invest in our rail service like they do in France and Germany. The have the ICE3 and TGVs and what have we got? The HST and the Virgin Pendolino which is not able to go as fast as it could because no-one wants to pay for upgrading the infrastructure.

Please, anyone correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know there is no efficient (such as SNCF/DB/NS) national rail system in the world that is not subsidised in some way or another ?

best regards

....and if you don't subsidise you will end up with the crappy service they have here and in the States.
