Some might be aware of the idea of having a one big railway company operating in the Hetzer-bordering countries and their neighboors. I've already talked to some of my neighboors about that and the feedback seems rather positive.
Here's my idea - there would be a huge company that runs service in Shilesia, Utterland, Vinnmark, Welstand-Westrijk, possibly Koban and Estiensia, with some trains extending to neighboors of these countries. The idea is: most of the countries here are rather small, and internal HSR networks wouldn't be feasible. Countries of Hetzer are pretty well-linked together (as for OGF standards) and share a lot of common history. And as there would be one company that runs high-speed railways, it would also be sensible to have it run on conventional lines as well, supplimenting the HSR's and making the timetables synchronised so they are the most efficient.
Most of the railways are already there, and I assume that the tracks will only need upgrading to a higher standard that allows the trains to reach 220-250kph. There are some example HSR lines that I'd like to suggest:
HSR1: Hijklönd - Göra - Gasten - Kirchenburg - Ligota - Solsburg - Uisteren - Rijksbergen - (unnamed city in Ventria) - Lenvier
HSR2: Ligota / Kirchenburg - Berreau / Domont - Hanviller - Flakaberg - Bornwerd - (maybe Nederlaika(1)?) - Berles - Folldrup - Ruthersberg - Rougon - (maybe Colenford(2)?)
HSR3: (maybe Tynkøbing(2)) - Kongshavn - Tibirke - Köln - Kollekind - Rutberg - Vinn - Waver - Berles - Varlonge - Kolm - Pern
HSR4: (maybe Eauxvandes(3)) - (maybe Larmonne(3) - Szenhegy - Welle - Mirkbos - Uisteren - Rijksbergen - Jauvinne-en-Coselle - Berles
Okay, please let me know what you think about the project. I would like to hear some feedback (not only from users that might be involved!).
(1) Nederlaika is a smaller town but would be a sensible stop as it sits roughly inbetween Bornwerd and Berles, and could also service the nearby Laikenmoor and other possible towns in the area.
(2) As for cities in Wesmandy I assume how tracks could be running in modern times. I also assume that these towns stay somewhat decently-sized. Also - all depends on Pawl's conscent here.
(3) Franquese speaking country (UL141) isn't avaiable but from what we know it's safe to assume that it'll be a collaborative. I make an assumption that the city is still there, the railway exists and the company would be allowed to access the tracks.
