Japan Shinkansen - Bullet Train (14/16)
A station controller waves his flag as women wearing kimonos pass a Shinkansen "bullet train" in Tokyo, Japan. The Bullet train could be thought of as the world's first speed train. Services started in 1964 with speeds at 210km/h or 131mph, the fastest trains went at the time, and many countries stills have no trains running at this speed.
