The fastest train in the world
China is building the Fuxing train line, which has a speed of 350 kilometers per hour, the only country that has the fastest train in the world, but this train put the country of China a step back in the race track in the fastest operation of the world trains after the unfortunate accident that occurred in 2011, where it reduced speed Fuxing operates from 350 kilometers per hour to 250-300 kilometers per hour, and at the other geographical end of the State of China, Japan still possesses the world record with an experimental train speed of 603 kilometers per hour through its maglev train that bypasses world trains by Sponsored high, but the standard speed remains less than the speed of the Chinese train Vuksing to stay at 320 kilometers per hour, The TGV train in France arrived through the pilot test of the speed of 575 kilometers, but in operating the normal does not exceed the speed of 320 kilometers per hour.
