AndyB in conversation with Mark Smith, The Man in Seat61, about Europe’s High Speed Railways
The expanding network of High Speed rail lines in Europe is bringing The Continent closer together and increasing the use of railways with shorter journey times.
AndyB and Mark Smith, The Man in Seat61, have between them travelled on all of the High Speed lines in Europe and experienced the services of all the High Speed operators. In Italy both Italo, a private operator, and TrenItalia offer High Speed services and the introduction of competition has reduced prices, increases the number of trains and ensured that quality is a focus for both operators. In Spain the extensive network of routes, built to Standard as opposed to Iberian gauge, has seen the air market reduce as the fast links capture market share.
AndyB and Mark chat through their experiences of High Speed travel, what is available across Europe and what the future may bring.
