China Railways High-Speed train G6515 rolls into the Humen Station in Humen Town, Dongguan City, China, on October 26, 2018. This Fuxing (复兴号) train is heading to Hong Kong West Kowloon. These trains are punctual and fast - the highest speed I noted while riding it a relatively short distance was 305 km/h (189.5 mph), and the ride was smooth as glass at that speed, and much quieter and more spacious than an airliner. This "bullet train" system is impressive, and greatly needed in the US. I am hopeful that Californians will not give up on the high-speed rail that is currently under construction, and these are certainly preferable to flying, given the hassles of TSA security needed to board a cramped aircraft these days.
