Nice indeed but a shame for them that they didn't broke the speed record of the maglev train. Personally I think that the German maglev train has the future even though the conventional train are very sexy. :naughty:

This isn't the USA where they sue over the most silly things... :p

Besides they usually do not run these things on maximum speed during normal operation. Just look at the public transport in your area: You won't easily find a bus going 100+ km/h + or a train going 180-190+ km/h. Same for your car. ;)

Have you people seen video footage of that thing? It's insane. It looks faster than a plane, and it actually is faster than a lot of small propeller planes. All the landscape rushing by is just a blur, and the engineers at the front are just laughing at the sheer exhilaration :)

Maglevs make sexy noise, they should replace all trains by maglevs when they'll have finished experimenting on them :p
