|Wuguang Railway||Modern Compartment||High Speed But Stable|
My ride on the Wuguang High-Speed Railway on April 24, 2011, the train was maintaining an average speed of 310 km/hour and it took 3 hours 15 minutes from Wuhan Station to Guangzhou South Station. It maintained the highest speed in the world, at least up until this moment.
|High Speed Railway||Nice and Clean Compartment||Excellent Service|
Even though the train was moving faster than the airplane with 333 km/hour, I could not feel the speed. It was very quiet and comfortable. The fashionable compartment was so nice and clean. The well dress crew member I met was a very nice looking lady and she could speak very good English. The train ticket from Wuhan to Guangzhou was RMB490.
|Train Ticket||High Speed Train||Nice Looking Lady|
As of this moment, the fastest train in US, the Acela Express that travels between Boston and Washington, capable of 150 mph - averages only about 80 mph on its 450-mile journey with traveling time of 6.5 hours.
