I have my own very strong opinions related to running passenger trains on freight railroads and, in my opinion, Garl hits the nail precisely on the head when he asserts that "true" HSR operations require dedicated tracks and ROW.

Blaine and Garl: Would either of you like to comment on the fact that with the exception of the U.S. and Canada, rail infrastructure is considered a strategic asset of the state and is owned by the state.
...
I don't regard this as rebuttal to anything, but do hope it is informative as to why we have the dichotomies that led Garl to start this thread.

Just about every example of speedy, good service cited by Garl was offered in the days of regulation when the railroads were responsible for passenger services. Those wonderful trains cited by Garl may have been speedy, but they were bleeding their operators right into bankruptcy court.
...
I can see the process working in dense corridors where highway and air traffic congestion already are a concern, but we probably never again will see the kind of service Garl cites.
