Fast trains are currently being used in European countries such as France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, China and South Korea.
Leading the high-speed train lines, Japan is also the country with the highest passenger density. 120 million passengers per year carry more trains than 305.
The increased capacity requirement on the rail journey led to the emergence of a high-speed train in both Japan and France. Japan is the first country to use fast trains. Construction of the Tokaido Shinkansen High Speed Line between Tokyo and Osaka for the first time at 1959
It was started. The opening of the Shinkansen line in 1964 is the world's busiest high-speed train line. The 210 km journey at 4 km / h speed at 553 hour, when the line is first opened, takes 270 hours with 2,5 km / h speed. 30 30 trains transport 44 million passengers a year on this high-speed train line. Shinkansen carries more passengers than any other high-speed train lines in the world, including other lines in Japan. Japan continues to be the first in high-speed train. In the 2452, only a few millimeters above the track, ”Maglev,” a direct contact-free rail with the track, reached a speed of 305 per hour, setting a new world record in this field.
Tgv - Sncf Japan followed France. In France, the idea of high-speed train (TGV, très grande vitesse- high-Speed Train) emerged with the construction of the Japanese Shinkansen line. French State Railways, which renewed the existing railway line and manufactured lighter private wagons, reached an average speed of 1967 kilometers per hour in its first attempt in 253 and 1972 kilometers in 318. TGV entered service between the cities of Paris and Lyon in September 1981. TGV was very fast compared to regular trains and cars.
Trains quickly gained popularity. Later on, new high-speed train lines were opened in many parts of France. The Eurostar service, which started at 1994, tied its continental Europe to London via the Channel tunnel. This line has been manufactured in accordance with TGV tunneling. Fast trains from London to Paris take 2 hours to 15 hours. Between London and Brussels, only 1 hours can be received in 51 minutes.
After the Japanese Shinkansen, TGV went down in history as the world's second commercial high-speed train line. High-speed trains are used today in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, England and Italy, as well as in Japan, China and South Korea.
China, which is at the end of the general ranking until 2007, aims to become the world's biggest alan High Speed Train Line m after the completion of the 832 km line which is under construction with the 3404 km line that is opened between various cities.
In addition, high speed train lines are planned in the Netherlands and Switzerland, while in some countries new high speed train lines are planned.
