686 Liquid-Venom-Piglet I thought Taiwan already imported trains from Japan, along with China.

190 RespublicaCuriae As an amateur rail fan, I think the main question is: would the bullet trains use the standard gauge (1,435 mm) or the Indian gauge (1,676 mm)?
119 supra16 fun fact. Over the Shinkansen's 50-plus year history, carrying over 10 billion passengers, there have been no passenger fatalities due to derailments or collisions
336 Blood_Lacrima Title is wrong, Shinkansen has been exported to China and Taiwan a decade ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Railways_CRH2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/THSR_700T
589 RadicalPoopParticle Good. It seems India is making decent progress in modernizing. I wish them all the best. They still have a long way to go, especially in rural areas, but there's a lot of exciting news coming from India lately.
202 viv0102 >The Japanese government has also agreed to fund most of the $17 billion needed for the project that will become part of Asia’s oldest railway network. We're gonna build trains and make the Japanese pay for it! Jokes aside, I've been on many Indian trains and I've traveled all over Japan on the amazing Shinkansen trains. All I can say is, IF they do indeed make this happen, it is going to be one HELL of an upgrade. So much so that, I just can't see this working out well in the end. It is going to be a massive sudden shock to the way of life for most of the people. Also, even Japan after all this time has to charge so much for travelling on these trains and requires immaculate maintenance, time keeping, control that I feel only the Japanese are capable of achieving. Interesting times ahead.
17 addpulp And the US gets... Amtrak. Sometimes.
106 Archmage_Falagar I thought Japan was supposed to have shunned any kind of military complex, yet now they're producing bullets the size of trains, much less selling them to other countries?
