The Fastest Train In The World

The Fastest Train In The World

The fastest commercial train in the world is now fully armed and operational, covering the line between New York and San Francisco. OK, I lied. Actually, that’s what I wanted to write. Sadly for us, it’s in China.

The new Chinese high-speed lines will increase their total network from 86,000km to 120,000km. That’s still smaller than the US railway system which, by contrast, only has one single “high-speed” line, bridging the 734km that separate Boston with New York at a whooping 113km/h average, totalling seven hours. Don’t take that line, folks. It will liquefy your brain. [Time of India]
