China builds fastest commuter train

Clearly their economy will collapse because of this. It may not have done 310mph but I sure would have liked to one day take one a train from Madison to Chicago, or the Twin Cities, or Milwaukee for a Brewer game. Maybe that makes me some sort of elitist tree hugging socialist. I don't care.

That looks like a photo of the crumbling rail infrastructure here in the US Ned. At least Google long enough to show a crash with some Chinese on the cars.

And in the US, a whole wopping 5 people died because of trains from January to September. You have to plug in your query, but for fatalities involving a train that were not employees, it's 5.
