Japanese magnetic levitation train this week established new speed record. This was reported by the railway company Central Japan Railway, share that train of seven carriages completed a test run on the experimental railroad tracks located in the Japanese prefecture of Yamanashi. The train was able to accelerate to 590 kilometers per hour.
During the test run train on board are 29 engineers. But apparently, they not were able to achieve a top speed, that can be squeezed from the Japanese maglev.
Another test on acceleration maglev train is scheduled for next Tuesday. The goal – to accelerate to 600 kilometers per hour.
So far, unfortunately, ordinary passengers will not be able to experience the pleasure of movement at such speeds. Experts saythat something at any moment can go wrong. Yet all this is nothing more than experiment, but experts believe, that such speeds may become part of everyday life very soon. Now in Japan there is a speed limit for passenger trains – 500 km / h, which also, in general,a lot.
