Japan Develops Even Faster Train

Getting around Japan is pretty fast and convenient thanks to their myriad of bullet trains and rail lines, and this time round they’re pushing for even faster trains thanks to Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Touted to be the country’s fastest train, this latest model will ferry people to their destinations at speeds of up to 217mph, which is significantly faster than the previous king of the hill model that ambled along at 186mph. Despite being faster, this new train is touted to be more energy efficient and emits less noise, making it a no-brainer to replace existing trains. It will take around 18 months or so for the design to be finalized before manufacturing and sales start.
