Network Rail has proposed a new £34bn ($55bn) high-speed railway line linking Scotland and London by 2030. The line will serve Birmingham and Manchester, getting passengers from Glasgow to London in just two hours and 16 minutes, the rail firm said.  It rejected several alternative routes, including the east of England. The proposed new High Speed 2 line will still need to be approved by the government, which is conducting its own rail network review.  The new line would become the country's second high-speed rail link after the line that runs from London St Pancras to the Channel Tunnel, run by the Eurostar service and connecting to high-speed lines in continental Europe. .Picture:  26 August 2009: Universal News and Sport (Scotland).All pictures must be credited to  www.universalnewsandsport.com.(0ffice) 0844 884 51 22.
