Fastest Train in the World

The very same day that I posted the R story for the A to Z Challenge, which features a discussion about a maglev train, in real life, a maglev train set a record.

In Japan, there’s a train line under construction from Tokyo to Osaka that will be the fastest in the world. The test today achieved a speed of 603 kilometres per hour. While the train line will open in 2027 between Tokyo and Nagoya, it won’t be until 2045 that you can go between Tokyo and Osaka.  That’s 30 years in the future.  However, it’ll take just over an hour between those two cities.  Incredible speed. Here’s a video of the test run.

I would love to ride on this.
