Imagine traveling at 270 mph on the ground, or even 360 mph. Faster than some airlines door to door. The videos are really something!
Although China still remains loyal to high speed conventional trains mainly due to cost, the country is in the process of adapting mainly German Mag-Lev technology to transport people around at 250 mph and faster. Here’s a video done a number of years ago right after Mag-Lev began exciting the imagination of Chinese transportation engineers.
Here’s another very fast train…a conventional high speed train that doesn’t rely on high tech Mag Lev. Of course the French tend to be very “Je ne sais quoi” about a lot of things. But they’re up to 360 mph, maybe faster today!
