Railway Gazette - Africa has their first high speed rail line as they are in final testing in Morocco for Al Boraq high speed rail service.

LGV Maroc comprises a 183 km high speed line between Tanger and Kénitra which is being built for operation at up to 320 km/h, as well as 137 km of upgraded conventional line from Kénitra to Casablanca where trains will run at up to 220 km/h.

Meanwhile back in Canada VIA Rail is ordering new trains with maximum speeds of 200 km/h....
