Top-10 Fastest Train In The World!

In this video,you will see the 10 fastest trains that are leading the world in 2016. With the development of newer and better technology, trains are getting faster over time. Many countries have developed their own high speed rail networks. These modern high speed trains covers hundreds of miles within minutes. With these fastest trains,travelling between the cities is becoming much easier and comfortable. Europe and several Asian countries are becoming competitive in making the fastest trains in the world. Japan leads the world with their oldest and successful high speed rail network. They started making the fastest trains back in the 60's. Now Japanese bullet trains shinkansen are the fastest in the world. China also rapidly improving their high speed rail network. With the new magnetic levitation technology China introducing many maglev trains breaking the speed records. List of trains: THSR 700T - is the high-speed electric multiple unit trainset derived from the Japanese Shinkansen family for Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR), Taiwan's high-speed rail line. Maximum speed 300 km/h (186 mph) ICE 3, or Intercity-Express 3, is a family of high-speed EMU trains operated by Deutsche Bahn. It includes classes 403, 406 and 407, which are known as ICE 3, ICE 3M and New ICE 3 respectively. Four multisystem trains, known as ICE International, are owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS, Dutch Railways). Maximum speed 320 km/h (199 mph) (service) 330 km/h (205 mph) (design) The Talgo 350 entered service as the RENFE AVE Class 102 marking the company's entry into the high-speed train manufacturing market. Tests with the prototype commenced in 1994, and Talgo 350 trains have been operating at a top commercial speed of 330 km/h on the Madrid-Barcelona and Madrid-Valladolid lines since 22 December 2007. This series of trains is designed to reach a speed of 350 km/h (220 mph), although present lines and commercial services limit the speed to 330 km/h (205 mph). The train consists of two power cars and Talgo VII intermediate cars with improved brakes and additional primary suspension. The Frecciarossa 1000, also known as the ETR 1000 (Trenitalia) is a high-speed train developed by AnsaldoBreda (now Hitachi Rail Italy) and Bombardier Transportation and designed by Bertone. Fifty trainsets were ordered by Trenitalia in 2010. Maximum speed 400 km/h (250 mph) (design) HEMU-430X (standing for High-Speed Electric Multiple Unit 430 km/h eXperimental) is a South Korean high-speed train intended for a maximum speed of 430 km/h (267 mph). The N700 series (N700系 Enu nanahyaku-kei?) is a Japanese Shinkansen high-speed train with tilting capability developed jointly by JR Central and JR-West for use on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines since 2007, and also operated by JR Kyushu on the Kyushu Shinkansen line. N700 series trains have a maximum speed of 300 km/h (186 mph), and tilting of up to one degree allows the trains to maintain 270 km/h (168 mph) even on 2,500 m (8,200 ft) radius curves that previously had a maximum speed of 255 km/h (158 mph). The CRH380A is a Chinese electric high-speed train that was developed by CSR Corporation Limited (CSR) and is currently manufactured by CSR Qingdao Sifang Locomotive & Rolling Stock Co., Ltd. As a continuation of the CRH2-350 program it both replaces foreign technology in the CRH2 with Chinese developments and increases the top speed. The CRH380A is designed to operate at a cruise speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) and a maximum of 380 km/h (236 mph) in commercial service. The original 8-car train-set recorded a top speed of 416.6 km/h (258.9 mph) during a trial run and the longer 16-car train-set temporarily held the world record for the fastest production train at 486.1 km/h (302.0 mph). The Shanghai Maglev Train or Shanghai Transrapid is a magnetic levitation train, or maglev line that operates in Shanghai, China. The line was the third commercially operated magnetic levitation line to open in history. It is the fastest commercial high-speed electric train in the world. A train can reach 350 km/h (217 mph) in 2 minutes, with the maximum normal operation speed of 431 km/h (268 mph) reached thereafter. TGV is France's intercity high-speed rail service, operated by SNCF, the national rail operator. A TGV test train set the record for the fastest wheeled train, reaching 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph) on 3 April 2007. The L0 Series is a high-speed maglev train that the Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) is developing and testing. JR Central plans to use the L0 Series on the Chūō Shinkansen railway line between Tokyo and Osaka, which is under construction. A seven-car train set a land speed record for rail vehicles of 603 km/h (375 mph) on 21 April 2015. The trains are planned to run at a maximum speed of 505 km/h (314 mph).
