HS2 will run through the Villa training ground at Bodymoor Heath.
It is leaving a trail of destrucion. What Hitler failed to do this HS2 Train will.
Where will the 36.000 passengers per day come from.

Hello Townie
Have you had a visit from the land Undertaker yet because the line goes through your house on its way
north right through Staffordshire.
In Staffordshire they are building 30 foot high walls 30 foot from peoples front doors. This is not a joke.
Mrs May needs a brain implant today.
Keep shunting

A Question for You All
If the electric grid dos not have enough electricity to run the Inter City Swansea to London
where will HS2 draw its supply from.
Now its Diesel and Electric it can cruise at 150MPH. HS2 needs another 100MPH, where
will that come from.
It has now been stated that the lights in Birmingham will dim when it tries to pull
out of Curzon Street.
The new Inter City have one fault, they need a bit more padding on the seats.
People are saying that if it went faster they may feel sick.
What do you think. Bring back steam.

I can't believe how much resource HS2 is taking up. Not just in monetary terms but in land too. In essence how much traffic will HS2 take off the roads?

It will save a few minutes off a journey but come on, how many trains arrive on time anyway? And yes, reports will say that trains are on time, if 'on time' means art iced within 15 minutes of scheduled time.

Will HS2 carry freight? This is what we need yo get off the roads. The difficulty is I suppose where ones road freight meet rail apart from just outside of London.

Speed of travel. I do t think the speed makes a difference to comfort providing the suspension is set up correctly (or the computer is setting the ride right). I've travelled on the Pendelino service many times, same route but if the computer is not working correctly, you'll throw up....

Hello
I feel rather sad That Water Orton have thrown the towel in and stopped asking questions.
With fire in the belly they could have got a lot to compensate for HS2 but no will or idea how
to go about it.

Read this week that HS2 was an EU scheme to be built in the Uk using
materials imported from the EU.
Concrete walls 30 foot high to screen house from trains.
People will become ill. The latest idea is to put old people into
bed and breakfast.
Is this the country we all strived to make great again.

It's all mad. The government are now proposing that London has an Orbital rail line, a bit like the M25. On the face if it, sounds fine. But folks need to be transported once they get off the train. Plus they have to get to the train in the first place.

Driving down the M4 a few weeks ago, so many drivers including myself were the only occupants in many of the vehicles. The other interesting thing is, lorries heading for London have the same cargo as those heading for Wales. I do wonder if the government supported companies with logistics rather than building more and more roads and rail services.
