Should China build our railways? Its bullet trains could soon travel at 310MPH after cutting edge upgrade (it would reach Paris from London in 57 minutes）
Already a world leader in train technology, China is set to ramp things up even further as it plans to run trains at 310mph.
'Now we have our own permanent magnet synchronous traction system with full intellectual property rights, marking a new chapter in China's high-speed railways,' Ding Rongjun, who works for the institute, told China Daily.
Talks began in February this year for state-owned Chinese firms to sell high-speed trains to the United States, senior officials said on Thursday, a deal that would be likely to ignite controversy.

A bit ironic i would say, as we invented the railways AND the "maglev" train. But like anything else, we don't have the skills anymore as we sold our future in the past.

Chinese given contract to build British railways? You must be joking! I would have thought Japanese would have been more appropriate to do the job with product quality, safety and reliability being their hallmarks!

Why not have them. Everything else that's used in the U.K. is made in China.

Is China in the EU? It seems to be doing very well outside of this idiotic EU and so can we if we ever have our LOOOONNNNGGGGG awaited EU vote!

There will not be an IN/OUT vote. It will be a YES/NO "do are approve of the EU reforms". If we vote NO then more 'reforms' will be forthcoming, and on and on and on we go until we vote YES. The vote that really counted was last month, and we flunked it.

Sorry - we should build our own damn railways, and ships, and cars, and ... ... ... ...

I do not want anyone in Paris to be in London in 57 minutes. I prefer the wait - and the border checks - at the Channel ports.
