The super conduction maglev train held the speed above 600km/h for over 10 seconds according to the CJR announcement. It travelled 1.8km in that time.
The maglev train broke the previous world record of 590km/h just set by itself last week. Passengers have still to wait until to 2027 to experience this incredible travel speed on land.
In comparison the French high-speed train TGV has set a speed record for conventional trains back in 2007 with 357.2mph (574km/h). The TGV speed record makes the new Japanese maglev record less impressive as its just less than 20mph faster.
