The French have broken a rail speed record with the test of their V150 passenger train. While I enjoyed my 135-mph trip on the TGV in 2004, I certainly wouldn’t have minded upping that speed to 350 mph.

Go here to see an awesome (in the true sense of the word, not the Cali surfer sense of the word) video of the record-breaking run, as well as videos of past record-breakers. Also at that link are more interesting things about TGV, HSL, and the technology and design of super fast choo-choos. “Long live tomorrow!”
