    HI Everyone, we need your voice!
    France wants to build a fast connection train TGV between Paris and Strasbourg!
    Fortunatelly, this connection will go further, from Paris to Budapest! But the french state decided to stop one big step to reach the goal! They don't want to build the Beaudrecourt-Strasbourg connection, so the train between this portion will run at 160km/h instead of 320km/h.

    So to change that, more people will sign this form, the better it will be in future! The good news is also that the train will be connected to London in few years time, the want to build something unique in Europe...London-Budapest by train, so please the brits, help us!

    Think yourself lucky. Australia's long distance passenger trains? Let's look at the Indian Pacific which runs from Sydney to Perth. Distance 4352 kms. Travel time 69 hours. That's an average speed of 63 km/h. And that includes the longest straight stretch of railway line in the world to get the thing cranked up to speed on. :eek: :eek:

    Indian-Pacific here

    Yeah I understand mate, but we are in the 21st century and we have the possibilities to change it, so why can't we!
    And also they want to do it, but they not sure, that why, we need to quick their asses into gear!
    So please guys, just come and vote it, cause you are loads in britains, Aussies, kiwis, canadians, so you will use it too....and maybe your government might do it too (they don't want to have a crap services in front of europe eyes). To be honnest, in australia you have the best service in city transport with skytrain, metro,etc...!
    In canada your are not bad at all, it's just cause you are using plane most of time!!!
