Japan's Shinkansen trains are among the fastest in the world, as they reach speeds above 300 km / h. Enjoy a collection of videos of Shinkansen trains passing through snowy train stations.
Excessive speed A Shinkansen train in Japan, passes through a tunnel with a speed of over 300 km / h.
Japan's fast trains Shinkansen or Sinkansen, is a network of railways throughout Japan created specifically for high-speed trains with a top speed of up to 405 km / h. The operation of the railway network began in 1964.
The fastest train on Rails (574 km / h) This is the TGV V150 test train in France, which is the fastest train in the world that moves on Rails. To V150 reaches speeds up to 574 km / h and is slightly behind the top speed magnetic train Maglev in Japan, who holds the world record (581 km / h).
They used the escalators as a luggage conveyor belt At a train station in Zhejiang, China, two women thought it would be smart to let their suitcases be carried up the escalator. One of the suitcases rolled down the stairs and hit a woman who was coming down at the time.
Rail welding Although in the past the rails had to have a gap between them to cope with temperature expansion/contraction, this technique is no longer applied to high-speed trains. The rails are welded together for several kilometers, and then heated to a high temperature to fully expand. Rail fasteners use very high clamping force, and so the contraction is much less. A second technique is the expansion joint, which may be different: it is no longer a mere gap, but a smooth joint where the two rails are side by side and when they grow or shrink in length they can slide next to each other.
The train is approaching In Zurich, Switzerland, a car engine will shut down as its driver sits on a level train crossing. The train is approaching, but the woman does not seem to be very anxious and wants to get her car over the rails. A man will be willing to help her, but he also spends too much time without immediately removing the car. Eventually the train will arrive and collide with the car, fortunately at low speeds after the driver had taken care to activate the emergency brakes.
The perception of speed This train is moving quickly or slowly; Is not it obvious, because our perception about the speed changes depending on the camera zoom. When we observe the scenery from the cabin of the train, we have the impression that the train goes fast. But if you enlarge the image to the rails, speed immediately appears less.

Metro strike causes overcrowding in Paris Wednesday 11 December 2019 at the Chatelet station in Paris, one should be very patient if you wanted to take the subway. The scene was filmed at the station corridors during strike. As Antoine Levek who posted the video, waited 40 minutes to get into the train. He also explains that the people waiting had exemplary behavior and no problem arose.
