Goal of Union is obstructed, by Commision – and by DB. (Sustainable, equal, conditions are not provided – for meeting competition, from far away, low cost manufactured.)
Railwaystandards, optimal 100 years ago, when steam was outed, now are “cemented”, at TEN-T… and allow for extra upon majority, clients of single available alternative, the on road transports, etc., etc.
(Longer trains, now is single alternative for adding to load capacity – to edge of railways…) This is not sustainable!
