The Fastest Train in the World

Want to go for a ride? Here’s the deal:

You have to appreciate the speed from the shot from the bridge. You thought the train from Paris to Avion was fast at 300 km/h but this is something else.

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 0.482! In particular, watch the train going under a bridge with people watching. This is FAST!!
