Some two months ago I was outlining the fastest trains in the world present at that time, having Chinese train at the top with its 311mph speed.
The German engineers are working on the Next Generation Train (NGT) project in which they are likely to build a train hitting the 400mph mark. It sounds really thrilling.
German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has come up with a double-decker prototype by emphasizing on the importance of aerodynamics that makes the train light weight, unlike the others, thus, increasing the possibility to make it not only the fastest train in the world but also energy efficient.
NGT is tested in Deutsch-Nederland Wind’s wind tunnel, which is based in Cologne and is regarded as one of the best testing facilities in the world.
You can obviously imagine yourself travelling in the future bullet train but it is not going to happen in next couple of years as the project is in its early phase. I would certainly be more interested in the safety of its journey as the research moves into time.
