The fastest trains in the World

As a mode of transportation these superfast trains have many advantages. Transport means great power and most importantly with the same comfort, the resulting pollution could be one tenth smaller than an airplane. These trains are still using conventional wheels but with a sophisticated engine uses the latest technology and superconducting magnetic levitation (maglev train) that float above the rails.

Japanese Train
Tokaido Shinkansen - Japan
Japan surprised the world by launching a fast train Shinkansen (bullet train) in 1964 to serve the route Tokyo-Nagoya-Osaka-Kyoto, and the speed is "only" around 201 km / h (in the year, already the most fastest).

CART WIN 350 Experimental:



Each track has its own names (Tokaido, Tohoku, etc.), and each type of train is identified by a nickname (Nozomi, Hikari, etc.). Almost 40 years since its first appearance, Shinkansen was transporting 6 billion passengers without any accident means. Shinkansen route also has a very high frequency, such as route of Tokyo and Osaka that are passable six trains per-hour (not per-day!).

JR 300

"Hikari" means "light", is the first service on the route Shinkansen Tokaido / Sanyo. Since the advent of Nozomi trains, currently provides a mid-level service with a few extra stops, but still with a high speed. Hikari trains linking Tokyo and Osaka in approximately 3 hours. His performance is more nuanced than the supersonic jet train, with a futuristic design and exceptional comfort.

Variations JR 500

Means "hope", Nozomi trains it only takes 2.5 hours to travel from Tokyo-Osaka, and 5 hours up to all destinations in the southernmost tip of the island in Hakata (Fukuoka). Railway routes in Japan is supporting the commercial mobilization of dense population in these areas, although to run it each train would cost up to $ 40 million.

JR 800 Series Latest

Special "Storm Troopers":

JR-Maglev MLX01

These trains include the type of superconducting magnetic levitation train - Maglev (floating above a magnetic rail) and in the trials could reach 581 km / h and has so far not been used commercially. China took a step forward with first lebh operating maglev train this type in 2004.

Train France
Train a Grande Vitesse (TGV) - France
Inaugurated in the early 80's, the TGV routes serving Lyon and Paris, after the success of its route and then added to other cities in France and even into other countries. The train was built by Alstrom SA - the second largest train manufacturer in the world. TGV trains new generation of V-150 broke the speed record for conventional wheeled trains at a speed of 515 km / hour. CART uses a supercharged engine and has particularly large wheels. Currently reaches new record of 574.8 km / h (see here).

Train Germany
InterCity Express (ICE)

In the early 90s Germany inaugurated the fast train to serve the route Hannover, Wurzburg, Mannheim, and Stuttgart. The train was built by Siemens and reach speeds of 280 km / hour.


Germany is also building its own maglev train Transrapid is capable of reaching speeds of 550 km / h but unfortunately never had an accident in September 2006 near the town of Lathen and killed 23 passengers.

Maglev Train Shanghai - China

Built with German technology, this train can reach speeds of up to 430 km / h and can carry passengers from Pudong International Airport to the Longyang Road Station in the city center in just 8 minutes.

Korean Train Express (KTX) - South Korea

In 2004 South Korea became the second country in Asia besides Japan is building a fast train line that connects several major cities. KTX Technology adopted the technology TGV (the French fast train).

Taiwan High Speed ​​Rail - Taiwan

After several years of delays, the Taiwan High Speed ​​Rail finally unveiled its use on January 5, 2008. Fast train was built by Japan's Shinkansen technology base and shorten travel time from Taipei to Kaohsiung to 90 minutes of the previous 4 hours.

Train Italy

Italy officially launched the fast train to Rome and Florence route with a speed 254 km / hour.

Eurostar - United Kingdom

This fast train dioprasikan 1994 and serving routes from London to France and Belgium (via the tunnel under the sea). From London to Paris by train takes 2 hours 35 minutes. Current velocity reaches 300 km / hour.
