The Fastest Train in the World

The fastest train in the world currently 663 miles from Wuhan to Guangzhou in less than three hours. With an average speed of moving 217 miles / h, making the train the usual six hours from central China to southern China in just 2 hours and 45 minutes. This is about the same time it takes to Americans from the Bronx to Coney Island MTA New York City.

China train designed and manufactured by Siemens, Alstom, Bombardier and as part of the $ 300 billion government project to develop a national network of rail passengers, the project, which includes the purchase of 80 trains is extremely fast. Although the price of a train ticket is about five times the price of the seats in the slow trains currently in use are economists still worry that the price tag for the project will be overwhelming, and China will not be able to cover costs.

Train services in China for new trains passing through 20 cities, traveling through areas that connects central China from less industrialized Pearl River to New Delhi. In his first test in early December, when the train exceeded impressive 350 km per hour. Average speed in pursuit of the traditional avenues of trains will be about 315 miles per hour, but the speed is much faster than any other high-speed trains in the world. German high-speed train system operates at about 232 km / h, does the Japanese system of around 243 km / h, and the French high-speed rail system operates at about 277 km / h.

China has launched a program of mass will increase the current high-speed rail service also 42 high-speed lines in the next two years. The government has high hopes that the new railway line will boost economic growth, especially in the less developed regions. Even the largest development can not be beneficial for some people, it is positive that the rail service is a low carbon transport alternatives to mass transfer.

The average speed for passenger trains in the United States is far behind competitors in high-speed, only 70 km / h if the U.S. would start speed option, like those in China and other countries, use, Americans traveling from Chicago to New York in about 3.5 hours - without having to deal with the hassle of airports and flying - and carbon dioxide will drastically respectively. Say what you that China is slowly trying to gain control of the world, thanks to its new high-speed rail system, these efforts accelerate
