Intermodal, yes – when railway equals with other modes! (All other modes, those resilient and redundant, decisively upgrade for added load and lower costs, etc.)
With load as the edge and when STAX32 should be min., regrettably railways does not withstand the modest STAX22,5, etc.
As not future proof (with safety factor below 1, current construction work, at TEN-T, etc., is “cementing” and devastating.
A shift, a New Old Railway is needed!
