China passenger train hits 300 mph, breaks record

A Chinese passenger train hit a record speed of 302 miles per hour (486 kilometers per hour) Friday during a test run of a yet-to-be opened link between Beijing and Shanghai, state media said.

The Xinhua News Agency said it was the fastest speed recorded by an unmodified conventional commercial train.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to point out that China is really taking the lead in this kind of technology; it's the kind of thing that the US used to excel at, but barely does any more.
