High speed rail is a very complex system, comprised by state of the art of a lot of elements (track layout, civil works, bridges, tunnels, track, switches, stations situation and type, rolling stock from technical point of view, rolling stock from customer point of view, traffic forecasting, marketing, financing, juridical aspects, environment, communication programme, etc.). High speed rail is a highly beneficial transport system for customers and Society, not applicable in the same conditions in every case. The conception of one of such system is not unique and it must be adapted to each case and each country. High Speed is a key element for interurban passengers transport in the future due to capacity, respect to environment and safety.
