Shinkansen (T)





You can imagine how much Eddie loved the trains in Japan, particularly our trip on the bullet train, which has a top speed of 285 kph, which means that when two of them pass each other the combined speed is faster than an aeroplane.

A correspondant has written:

"Say been enjoying the blog update, just a query if the bullet train goes 285 kph the combined speed of an approaching train at 285 would make combined speed of 570 kph. Your average jet liner travels around 800/900 kph."

He goes on to say:

"Your not thinking of the new train speed record of the French train? In April the TGV broke its own 1990 record with a new speed of 574.8 km/h (357.18 mph) under test conditions."

I stand corrected.
