China to run world's fastest train
China will run the world's fastest bullet train, the Fuxing, between Beijing and Shanghai at 350 km per hour, covering the 1,250-km-long distance in just 4.5 hours from September 21. Currently, it takes six hours to travel from the Chinese capital to the country's business hub - the distance equal to that between Jammu and Bhopal. China began running its first 350-km-perhour, high-speed train between Beijing and Tianjin in 2008. But it reduced the speed between 250 and 300 km per hour after a major accident in 2011.
