Step aboard a recreated Tilt Train in Rail Today as well as learn how the ‘Maglev’ trains reach speeds of 550kph, as you explore a revival in train travel.
Rail ruled supreme as the fastest and most efficient means of land transport from the early 19th century.
By the 1950s, rail's supremacy was challenged by the plane and motor car and in many countries rail services were reduced during the second half of the 20th century.
Today rail is experiencing a revival with the development of high speed trains, together with the desire of many people to savour the journey, not just the destination.
