The huge fuss about HS2 ignores something important. Realistically, what's needed isn't a high-speed railway but a high-capacity railway. Lots of normal trains with enough room for everyone to sit down would be much more useful than a small number of really fast ones, and could be packed closer together because they would be able to stop a lot faster. I really can't think of any politician who has mentioned this.
