Well its not a particularly high speed train as it doesn't have interlaced bogies joining the coaches. The French and Germans are decades ahead of the rest of Europe when it comes to modern high speed intercity rail.


True high speed rail is not something that seems to happen over here - the UK has 68 miles of proper high-speed track. Starting at about the same point in time, China now has 7,450 miles....


The 800s are rated for 140mph, but there won't be many places that they will actually do that for a long time to come.
