The highest recorded speed of a MagLev (Magnetic Levitation) train was tested in Japan in 2003. So how much was the speed? A mind-boggling 581 km/h (361 mph) which is 6 km/h faster than the conventional TGV speed record.
Now, the same trains will be operational and by 2025 Tokyo will be connected to Osaka. The construction begins in another 2 to 3 years.
