    ^^ All roads may lead to Rome, but all train tracks seem to lead to the Czech Republic and Germany.

    Well spotted, I was going to suggest rail ferry but Skkin got that; scratches on the compiler's screen?

    I did see something the other day about a project being approved for a high speed rail tunnel under the Baltic between Estonia and Finland. China is putting 15 billion Euro into the project. Will be the longest undersea rail tunnel when complete.

    It was in the Independent I think...here it is:

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a8818896.html

    An ambitious plan to build a vast railway tunnel under the Baltic Sea to connect Finland and Estonia looks set to go ahead after the project secured €15 billion in funding.

    The tunnel, which is supported by both countries’ governments, would connect the Finnish capital of Helsinki with the Estonian capital of Tallinn – cutting a two to three hour ferry crossing to just 20 minutes by train.

    If completed the infrastructure would be the longest undersea tunnel in the world, eclipsing the Channel Tunnel that connects England with northern France.

    The new funding comes from Chinese investment Touchstone Capital Partners, with one third provided as private equity and two thirds as debt financing, according to a memorandum of understanding signed with developers. Late last year the project also secured a €100m investment from Dubai-based ARJ Holding.

    ^no, it's not. Just saying there will be a rail line across(under) the Baltic in the future. Maybe...

    Defimitely not as long as "that line" though.

    Yeah. I've visited Sequoia National Park in California and can attest that those are some enormous trees.
