US President Joe Biden has signed the $1 trillion package of spending on America's infrastructure. The money will be spent on roads, transport, broadband and other areas. It's a rare bipartisan deal, and Democrats are now focusing on an even larger package for healthcare, education and climate change. Also today, a co-operative runs its first freight train service on France's railways. The partly crowdfunded initiative Railcoop is also planning to start passenger services on underused lines.
