Thread: World's Fastest Train

    World's Fastest Train

    The TGV in Paris, France is claimed to be the "world's fastest" train, reaching a speed of 357.2MPH (April, 2007). To accomplish this, a modified TGV train rode the track under test conditions -- voltage boosted to 31,000-volts, along with tamping an extra ballast onto the right-of-way

    Impressive as hell, BUT I wouldn't ride a train that fast with traditional rails. Watched a special on the Maglev (magnetic levitation) several months ago and it's quite safe. The magnets opposite polling keeps it from never touching the rail. It has reached 581 km/h.
