Here is a piece of film showing the setting on a new wordl record of the fastest train on rail.
It is the French TGV which broke the record on 3 April 2007 as it reached speeds of 357.2 miles per hour. (574.8 kph)
Notice how this doesn't get much of an appluase rom the station platform as it arrives.
The driver looks very pleased with himself, even if he has aged a year or two at the end...
