Great vids Halfy. Tandem looks ok, but still might be to scared to do it.

Thanks Nork gave me an excuse to post this.

Went on the Shanghai Maglev - World's Fastest Commercially Operating Train.

Took a picture of the speed we were doing.





The train has actually exceeded 500kph in testing. It does the 19 mile journey to Pudong airport in 7 minutes!

Went on the bullet train as well. Shangai to Beijing, but that only went 350kph.

That was Brilliant Chris Very Happy I enjoyed that. Don't see it catching on in Blighty tho ? On long haul distances the infra structure has be so secure, so safe. I don't know if we can ensure that here ? Gawd almighty we cant even provide a decent bus service where I live !!!

Somehow I expected things around 300 km/hr to look blurrier, but closer to 500 km/hr it was quite satisfying. Loved the train passing.

I jumped a mile when the train passed. Girls on the other seat had a good laugh.
