Passengers in Maglev train at 500km/h, experienced this amazing speed, during test runs in central Japan. Watch the video…
The Maglev train with one hundred passengers, whizzed along a 42.8km (27 mile) route between the cities of Uenohara and Fuefuki, reaching speeds of up to 500km/h (311mph).
The Central Japan Railway Company is running eight days of testing for the experimental maglev Shinkansen train on its test track in Yamanashi Prefecture.
The maglev trains are faster than Japan’s bullet trains, which currently travel at about 320km/h (200mph).
They use magnetic levitation, hence the name, to “float” above the train tracks.
