China have tested a new high speed train over the weekend that blows all competition out of the water.
The super fast train built by Sifang Locomotive is almost twice the speed of the previous record held by Beijing Shanghai High Speed Railway. China have spent a great deal of money over the last few years on it's high speed rail network with plans to lay over 16,000km of tracks by 2020 to connect every major city.
