Horses for course, trains for tracks

DfT has published the “National Implementation Plan for the Technical Specification for Interoperability for Energy (ENE TSI): Commission Regulation 1301/2014”, which is about as dry as it sounds. One interesting note though, is it suggests trains operating on the prospective HS2 line would not be able to operate on other UK rail lines (HS1 in Kent can run on its high speed line and the older, slower, tracks). This would make it harder for HS2 trains to be “passed down” to other networks after finishing their initial service and would encourage a foreign sale if the owner wanted to recoup any of their value.
