China Unveil's World's Fastest Train

 China has unveiled what it bills as the fastest rail link in the world -- a train connecting the modern cities of Guangzhou and Wuhan at an average speed of 350 kilometres an hour.
Test runs for the service began earlier in December and the link officially went into service when the first scheduled train left the eastern metropolis of Wuhan on Saturday
 The super-high-speed train reduces the 1069 kilometre journey to a three hour ride and cuts the previous journey time by more than seven and a half hours.
 The Chinese train's average 350 kilometres per hour beats the average for high-speed trains in Japan (243 kilometres per hour) and France (277 kilometres per hour)

 Work on the project began in 2005 as part of plans to expand a high-speed network aimed at eventually linking Guangzhou, a business hub in southern China near Hong Kong, with the capital Beijing
