Japan works on the creation of one of the world’s fastest trains

High-speed trains began the subject of non-stop competition between China and Japan a long time. A short time ago Central Japan Railway Company stated that it is eagerly awaiting for the creation of the fastest train on the planet.

The train will make trips on the Tokyo — Nagoya route and be able to reach the maximal speed of 500 kmh. The project cost will be $64 billions.  It stands to mention that according to expectations the project will be launched in 2027.

Due to the use of magnetic levitation the train can considerably decrease the friction thereby cutting the travel time between two cities from 1.5 hours to 40 minutes, New York Times reports.
