Richard Nunno, July 19, 2018, Transportation: Fact Sheet | High Speed Rail Development Worldwide, https://www.eesi.org/papers/view/fact-sheet-high-speed-rail-development-worldwide

Many countries in Europe and Asia have developed high-speed rail for passenger travel, although some systems also offer freight service.
