I think that speed is limited to 160-200km/h on a conventional line

K ill admit it does look decent in that red paintjob, sort of like how taiwan HSR's 700s look better than the JRs with the orange lines.

In France exist conventional lines for 220 km/h, same in Spain. In Germany exist conventional lines for 230 km/h and in Russia for 250 km/h.

AGV video

Here's a video of the AGV:

It's a commercial video but you do see some interesting info on the project.

way cool

I'm surprised driving something that runs on tracks in the 21st century is so complicated. I figured the trains had a computer and mostly drove themselves, and the engineer was more of a security guard.

The film was made in 1995, so it's not the 21st century. And if you compare it with flying a plane is seems extremely easy.

If the computer drives the train what does the engineer do? Blow the horn or operate the doors?

If you can get the FRA to deregulate and add some dedicated HSR line from Boston-NY and upgrade the overhead to 25 kV constant tension NY-NJ

It only needs a dedicated 25 kV HSR line outside the cities an, the AGV can easily switch to the current systems in the cities.

Anyway, the NTV AGVs are in production right now, so hopefully it won't take to long to see the 1st red AGV fresh from the factory.
