China Launches World’s Fastest Train - Video


The world’s fastest express train link has started service in China, cutting a 9 hour trip to just three hours.

Travelling an average speed of 380k, the train is running from Wuhan in the centre of the country to Guangzhou in the south.

It cost $15b, so how many shall we ask our transport minister for?

Chinese reports say that on one of its first trips, a smoker lighting up in the toilet, despite the “no smoking” signs, triggered a two hour delay when alarms went off and the train had to stop.
