Default For Torgony: Japanese Bullet Train

T, since you asked, here are some images of the Japanese Bullet Train (Shinkansen)

The nose of the Bullet Tain has evolved over the years. Here's what it looks like today as she pulls into Nagoya Railway Station.

Looks like a duck or platypus?


I used an app on my iPhone to track the speed as we travelled from Nagoya to Kyoto. A train runs every 4 minutes.



The interior is quite comfortable: spacious with plenty of leg room, smooth and very quiet. One does not even hear the click of the wheels on the rails.

Thank you very much, Jehan. Impressive aerodynamics in play. Yes, looks like a final step of a "species evolution"
