Railways, formerly a most proud transport device, now is, at the mercy of taxpayers. This is not sustainable!
Quality pays and for high quality at vital functions of society, transports, etc., just the requested are:
resilency, redundancy and robustness, simple as that!
Currently railways is short of all three – and accordingly now a low quality device.
Standards, optimal for electrification, at shift from steam, no longer is, etc.
A New Old Railway now is needed!
