Remarks & Notes 
The 16-car N700-7000 sets are operated by JR West on Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen services. 16 trains of this "N" series were built from 2007 to 2010 for JR West for duty mainly for Nozomi und Hikari services between Tokyo and Hakata. N700 series trains have a maximum speed of 300 km/h (186 mph), and tilting of up to one degree allows the trains to maintain 270 km/h (168 mph) even on 2,500 m (8,200 ft) radius curves that previously had a maximum speed of 255 km/h (158 mph). Another feature of the N700 is that it accelerates quicker than other shinkansen trains, with a maximum acceleration rate of 2.6 km/h/s. This enables it to reach 270 km/h (170 mph) in only three minutes. Set # N16 is racing through Shin-Yamaguchi station with 300 km p.h. with a "Nozomi" from Tokyo to Hakata.
