I rode the Fastest Train on the Planet or should I say, the world’s fastest train either built and I reserved it for the day all to myself. I contacted the maker of the fastest train in the world, JR Central, and asked them if I can reserve their maglev train for an entire day. And they said, Yes. Filmed in June of 2022, I’m the first YouTube content creator to ever get full access to this Yamanashi Maglev Train testing facility. I’m going to go inside and give a full maglev train tour. JR Central’s research started in 1962 and they’ve been developing the Maglev Technology ever since, ultimately building what we’re going to ride today, the Linear Chuo Shinkansen Train…The fastest train on the planet running initially from Tokyo to Nagoya and then to Osaka, officially opening after 2027. It’s in the Guinness World Records as the fastest magnetically levitated (magelev) train at the speed of 603 km/h (374.69MPH). The train’s normally operating speed is about 500km/h (311mph). Which means it cuts down the current Tokyo to Osaka 2.5 hour Shinkansen ride down to only 67 minutes. For people in the States, Washington DC to New York in just one hour! Fun little fact, this superconducting maglev train operates without a driver physically seated in the train’s cockpit, instead, you’ll only find cameras there. It’s all fully automated.
