They put old, antiquated, dirty, late UK trainsand infrastructure to shame. Still arguing over HS2 here over a half a century after Japan introduced its first Bullet Train.

In the 1960s, the UK was still making steam engines.

Ironic, just about every country in the world has better and cheaper rail travel than Britain, and we gave the passenger railway to the world.

What impressed me most about these trains was just how quickly the Japanese passengers can get onto and off the trains at the intermediate stops. On the platform are painted little boxes for the passengers to wait in,clear of where the doors will stop.

I bet the tickets for these fast trains in Japan cost nowhere near as much as the tickets for the slowest trains in Britain.

I have no proof but from memory I think they're quite expensive, but fast and on time.
