Thanks to Statista for the following information. The statistic illustrates the world's fastest high-speed trains in 2015, based on the maximum speed. China's high-speed trains are at the top of the list: The Shanghai Maglev reaches 431 kilometers per hour, while the Harmony CRH 380A has a speed limit of 380 kilometers per hour. In an initial testing, the CRH 380A high speed train reached a top speed of 416.6 kilometers.  In Canada, VIA RAIL maximum is 160kph and that doesn't happen often!
