China to run DRIVERLESS bullet trains at the speed of 217 miles per hour in a world first
China is developing the world's first fleet of automated high-speed trains that can travel at a maximum speed of 350 kilometres per hour (217 miles per hour), state media reported.
The automated system, developed by state-run China Railway Corporation (CRC), will be used on the Fuxing bullet trains along the Beijing-Zhangjiakou railway line, which is currently under construction for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

they should build them here in the UK so we can sack all the train drivers and guards and that will shut up the unions and bring the strikes to an END!!!
