French TGV smashes record


In the spirit of the forth-coming Train Sim from ACES, I just had to post this amazing video showing the French TGV called V150 smashing the speed record at 574.8 kilometres per hour / 357 miles per hour yesterday. It is powered by motors that can develop over 25,000 (yes, thousand!) horsepower. Absolutely incredible!

    That truly is impressive. I wish we had one to wisk the the tourist from Orlando International Airport to Disney World,….that would leave room for us to handle an occassional maverick astronaut in diapers..hehe  😎 These trains are truly amazing… we very much need something like that here.
