High speed trains in ADELAIDE ?
Throughout Europe, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and South America, etc, ALSTOM, is forging ahead in it's pursuit of Excellence in High Speed Rail transportation. In a couple of days Eric Pieczak will propel an ALSTOM 'Train à Grande Vitesse' at hopefully a speed exceeding 540 kilometres per hour on the line TGV EST EUROPÉEN from Paris to Strasbourg while the world waits with bated breath.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Australians are paddling in the backwaters like the Sleep's Hill Viaduct, above. Phillipe Mellier, you are always welcome, here in Australia. I will put my money on 560kph, one way bet!
J'espère que les temps font fraîches, sèches et ensoleillées, M. Pieczak.
