I was watching a television show the other day on a new engineering concept that would build a tunnel from New York to London. This transatlantic tunnel will cut the travel time to 54 minutes!!!!!!. Using a Maglev train and a vacuum tight tunnel, this concept will virtually escape friction and this is how the time for travelling is cut down. THis is amazing.
Here is a link to the webpage.
Have a look around, there is a lot of interesting facts about how this is going to work.
I still cant beleive this.

And just think if you throw a coin sideways. What you get is a coin moving a thousands of miles an hour in side a train. That and if its a vacuum that coin could say put a hole in the back.
