Bullet Trains


Indispensable to travelers in Japan and Europe, electric-powered bullet trains offer incomparable benefits: chiefly a relatively quiet, high-speed mode of mass transportation with low environmental impact. This colorful book examines the history, current use, and technology of these sleek trains, the fastest of which reach speeds of nearly 200 miles per hour. Noted train historian and author Brian Solomon also takes readers on a tour of high-speed passenger lines in Japan and France, and looks at the future of bullet trains in the United States, including recent discussions of proposed lines for California, Florida, and the Eastern Seaboard.
