How would you like to meet this at a crossing.:thumb:
YouTube - Worlds fastest Train: 574.8kmph.
That's cool! But I bet you don't get to meet it at a crossing... I am surprised that there is footage from alongside the right-of-way - must be an "official" camera, not a railfan.
Shouldn't that speed be about 375 mph, rather than 350?
Nope. It should actually be about 360. 357.24, if you want to split meters...
(1 mile = 1.609 km)
No.....357 mph....1.610 km./mile
Holy Crap!!! Awesome!
I think its funny in the comments they are all arguing over which is better trains or maglev. Who cares! 357 MPH is fast!!
What a surprise: I was wrong again!! 357 it is. hamr:-D As the saying goes: "You know what in; same stuff out". Of course, now I don't find the video all that impressive. :-D
What can I say, I'm a farmer, we round everything down.:thumb:
Very impressive !!
I have an idea:
Do you think one of us could model that train and run it at scale speed?
I think many of the cheaper train sets are already set to run at that scale speed...!
Sure just nail the track right on the wall and fire it up!
I'm at home and I'm supposed to be doing work, yet I keep watching this video!!
I bet that train could do a loop like on a roller coaster. jawdrop
I love watching those videos! It is amazing that they can do that safely.
My neighbor bought an old athearn hustler with a rubber band drive that I am fairly sure could keep up with those at scale speeds, the only problem is that 18" radius curves in HO tend to act like a launch pad for it.
