Winter Olympics

High speed trains have begun servicing the region

China’s promise to connect Beijing with the two mountain venues with a high-speed train has become a reality. The experience is absolutely mind-blowing. The train can reach a top speed of 350 km/h, making it the world’s fastest autonomous train in operation.

China’s rail industry is world class and the envy of the world and this is one feature they are looking forward to showcasing at the Winter Games. The trains will stop at stations automatically to a precise timetable, and change speed depending on the timing between stations. However, a monitoring attendant will still be on board in case of emergencies.
