The previous TGV record was 515km/h (320mph), set in 1990.

The record attempt by a modified TGV took place on a track between Paris and the eastern city of Strasbourg.

The absolute train speed record was set by a Japanese magnetic levitation train - Maglev - in 2003. It reached 581km/h (361mph).

These figures must be what Branson and co can only dream of haha! Quite some speed for a train on wheels (can the Maglev really be classed as a train, I think its more a tram, with a train shell lol).

Bloody French making us look stoopid again lmao!
