Between now and then, problems connected with choosing a route for the Frankfurt-Paris line will be investigated. Normal permissible tolerances. Line layout for 300 and 400 km/h speeds, sinusoidal transition curves, horizontal curve radii of 500 to 6,000 m, vertical curves of 3,600 to 50,000 m; Cant of up to 12.
