Not only in Ukraine, but in Sweden – at priority lines…- just recently, derailments have occurred. (Even worse, here authorities, so far, seem not to have have a clue, why…) This is not sustainable!
For sake of railways, of clients, of tax payers, of all, a timely, an upgraded, high quality “Old Railway”, now urgently has to be constructed for!
