The Chinese high-speed railway system also known as “CRH” has reached new heights with the production of the CR400. A high-speed super train like no other. It can reach a Maximum speed of 400km per hour/ 248.5miles per hour, and an average speed of around 350km per hour/ 217.5 miles per hour.
At this speed, one would only need 4.5 hours to travel from Beijing to Shanghai! Considering the price, possible delays, check-in, taxing, landing, and luggage claim one would need to go through flying, the CR400 is a far more convenient, affordable, and time consuming.
The amazing speed possessed by the CR400 is not its only merit. Its interior design and comfort level is nothing less than outstanding on their own.
A recent test was performed when they placed four coins up right on the ledge of the window traveling at 300km+/hour. The four coins all stood upright for a span of over a minute at a time, goes to show how smooth the ride is moving at such speed.
Experts claim that China is currently on pace with such global railway super powers as Germany and Japan.
