China’s New Bullet Train 10/29/2010

Traveling in China just got quicker. A new high speed rail opened for business this week, connecting Shanghai to Hangzhou. October 26  marked the first official trip by the train, recording speeds above 245 miles per hour. The new bullet train which set speed records during the previous trials runs allows citizens to travel the 200 km distance (almost 125 miles) in 45 minutes; twice as fast as the old train’s speed.
