The fastest train in the world
If the passenger to the desired destination carries the slowest train, the road just seems to go on forever. But the journey time can be reduced significantly and spend your entire trip with maximum comfort. The road was not too long and tedious, you should travel on the correct route, which will go the fastest train in the world. And what are the trains claim to be the fastest? Let’s look at some contenders who are able to develop greater speed and allow passengers to quickly reach destinations.
MLX01 in Japan
This is the fastest train in the world on the magnetic suspension. He was surprised in 2003, the entire world is developed up to 581 km/h speed – this movement speed of the train managed to achieve twice in test works. And, in General, the average speed of this train is about 300 km/h. However, among high-speed trains in Japan, it has become a symbol of reliability and speed – and remains so for more than fifty years.
TGV POS V150 in France
Another contender for the title of this French high-speed rail is a train that can accelerate almost up to 575 km/hour. The train showed in the tests in 2007 – and thus, he set a record of world level among this type of trains. The French are very proud of this train, since they have proven that rail trains can develop no less speed than the Champions in this case – train on the magnetic suspension. This composition carries passengers from France to Switzerland and Germany, but the movement speed it averages 320 km/h.
Harmony in China
This rail train was able to tests to achieve a velocity of 487 km/h. In the class of serial trains of China, this composition set a world record. In addition, it develops high speed, it is still considered the most comfortable and safe. Only need about three hours to get from Guangzhou to Wuhan city, the distance between which is more than 1000 km. And moving composition typically with a speed of 350 km/h.
Hayabusa in Japan
And this train is rightly can be called the fastest because it can accelerate to a speed of 500 km/h. The composition transports passengers from Tokyo to Aomori and back. Cars in business class, according to passengers, are very similar to the cabin. In addition to high technical characteristics of the Japanese train is environmentally friendly and cutting edge design. The demand for these trains is quite high. Especially interested in United States of America who rely on the transportation of passengers, primarily on safety and environmental friendliness.
Sapsan in Russia
This the fastest train in Russia, developed by Siemens, was acquired by the «Russian Railways». The composition of the plies on the roads of local significance from Moscow to St. Petersburg and back. The maximum speed that is capable of «Sapsan», equal to 350 km/h. However, on local roads train moving at a speed of 200-250 km/h.
Trains, developed by Siemens are somewhat different from warehouses in Europe. For example, air intakes on the trains of the manufacturer placed on the roof, which gives the opportunity to operate warehouses at a sufficiently low temperature (minus 50 degrees). Salon «Sapsan» is somewhat wider (30 cm), than the cabins of trains of the European type, due to different size gauge of the Russian roads and other dimensions of the rolling stock.
