This is another one of those items on my "Bucket List" that I've done on several occasions – namely: the TGV in France, the Shinkansen (literally "high-speed train") in Japan, and surprisingly, a "local" train from Shanghai city to the Pudong airport.  The photo below shows the speed reached on the trip in Shanghai, and as I recall, the top speeds reached on the other trains was about the same - 300km/h (186mph)
