this forum would be better off without ya...
At the same time I've decided to stop wasting my time and say adios to this forum...
It takes about 40 muscles to smile, but only 4 to pull the trigger of a decent rifle

Trains are cool but not very economically viable.  The infrastructure to build a rail network that has enough entry an exit points is huge compared to a Airport system.  Imagine connecting every single airport in the world with high-speed rail lines.  That's exactly what airplanes do without the cost of building the rail lines.  Its also a lot cheaper to maintain a fleet of airplanes then a country wide rail network.  

When it comes to freight, trains start to become more viable but only on the bulk side.  Coal, rice, corn.  Trains are the best for these types of goods.  But nobody needs a high-speed freight train.

Shame the Chinese cannot copy the West's  food quality control, since they copy everything else.

Show me proof milk powder from Australia is tainted? Get your facts right, there has never been a complaing against Australian milk in China. A Jumbo jet of fresh milk is flown into China EVERYDAY. You need to do your reasearch.

It was a NZ baby milk formula company that sourced some of it's milkpowder from Australia. A shipm ...

Where is the proof? Nothing but groundless opinion. Australian milk powder coming out of the Murray Goulburn Koroit factory in Australia meets the highest standards. I know more than you about this than you think. Oh look I named the factory, the company and the town, why is that do you think?

You are correct, HS trains have their place but should run alongside the cheaper slower alternatives, China has axed too many of the sleeper services in favour off high price HS lines
