I'm new to the group and glad to find this forum. Lots of great info and pics. I took my first bullet train ride this summer and while I'm been on trains in Europe, I have to say the Japanese trains felt a lot faster and less traffic so the ride was always at a faster speed. Glad to see there is the potntialt o get some hide spped trains in the United States especially since I live in Florida. Check out my first train video. Let me know what you think.
