China’s newest fast train set a world record during a trial run as it hit 486.1km/hr on the Beijing-Shanghai line.

The train is a 16-car bullet train, designed and built by CSR Qingdao Sifang Locomotive and Rolling Stock. It was designed for daily use on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed line.

The bogies of this new high-speed train have been tested with Nencki’s bogie test stand NBT.
