Japan's New "Bullet Train"
Japan has already run trials of its new, more sleek "Bullet Train." The original train was released in 1964 and the new one is capable of travelling at 233-250 mph. It's been redesigned with safety as its number one priority. The new design includes flaps on the top of the train to provide rapid braking in a earthquake situation. The new model is expected to be released by 2011.
