The World's fastest train?


If you thought the train from Paris to Avion was fast at 300 km/h,  this video clip is something else.

I wonder how far back this new train has to begin slowing down for the station.  Imagine going through a station at full speed!

This is a high speed train built by the Alstom rail group in Belfort , France. They share manufacturing facilities with the GE Energy Products Europe (EPE) Gas Turbine group.  The video was provided by the GE EPE Chief Engineer in Belfort.

The train hit 574.8 Km/h which works out to 357.2 MPH or Mach! In particular, watch the train going under a bridge with people watching. This is FAST!!

And it is powered by electricity. Now, watch the attachment.
