As far as I can see, it will basically exist to allow people to live in Cheshire and work in London. The rest of the network outside the south east is falling to pieces with operators papering over the cracks by selling each other used trains, rebranding them, and saying "look at all this, ahem, new rolling stock we've got you. Oh and by the way, about those fares. We may have to put them up a teensy bit".
It will be late. It will be massively over budget. It will be of bugger all use to most people.
There's was a great top tip in Viz the other day that said something like "Avoid the need for expensive HS2 railways by starting your meeting in Birmingham 20 minutes later".
Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).
