This is not the world's fastest train, but this is the fastest railroad train and fastest comercial train
The Japanese train is a prototype and magnetic.
its maximum commercial speed (with passengers) is 320 km/h

to rubi: maglev is not a "classic" train with wheels, so you can´t compare maglev and classic train... ;)

I saw somewhere a show about the Japanese maglev trains.. and it stated that they are now carrying out tests and developing a tunnel for the maglev trains that would be pumped out of air so there'd be virtually no air resistance..

They stated that maglev's could then potentially reach speeds of 3000km/h (1800mph) and up with no problem..

And again: they're already developing that system.. Imagine.. Paris to Beijing in like 5 or so hours (dunno the dist betw. the two so just an assumptional figure).. Commercial airlining would be cut in half! :)

That must have been the most disappointing wait ever - 1:25. Probably standing there for hours waiting to see the train and 3 sec later its gone. You blink you miss it.

I heard it's actually a French troop carrier designed to ferry personnel as far a way from the front line as quickly as possible.

#1:
As a train driver myself I know a little about trains :)
A train has of cause metal wheels which are not flexible as a car tyre. So the contact to the rails is very small and therefore a train can’t break that much.
I Denmark some of our trains has a magnetbreak as a supplement to the airbreak. In case of an emergency (or slippery rails or a too high speed to the platform :-D ), we can lower some powerful magnets an apply 1500volt to them. These magnets catch the rails and help the train to a quicker stop. But anyway the breakforce is not that great.
When I use the emergency break the passengers will not notice the stop as a “powerful” stop.

#6 I was studying technology in uni and got onto biomimicry, those Japanese trains changed the nose of the front to mimic a kingfisher bird because they observed them fly into the water at great speed with little to no splash. I found the whole biomimicry subject to be really fascinating.
