That's not really too much faster than technology that's been around for years ... the Acela (which runs down the NE corridor from Boston to
Washington DC) runs at a max speed of 150 miles per hour ... this thing in China goes at 186 miles per hour ( 300 kph = 186 mph).
With a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h) the Acela Express is the only service in North America that exceeds the U.S. Department of Transportation's
125 mph (201 km/h) definition of high speed rail. The Acela achieves an average speed (including stops) of 80 mph (129 km/h) between Washington
and New York; maximum speed is 150 mph (241 km/h) on two sections of track in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Personal note, i LOVE taking the Acela from New York to DC ... that thing hauls ass and door-to-door, is faster than flying (no security lines,
