Remarks & Notes 
The longest high-speed train in the world. High-speed passenger train Siemens Velaro RUS "Sapsan" runs from Moscow to Saint Petersburg near Klin city. "Sapsan" (translate as "Peregrine Falcon" from russian language) started regular service on the Moscow – Saint Petersburg Railway in December 2009 at maximum speed of 250 km/h (160 mph). In near future new build High-Speed Lines would allow for speeds of up to 330 km/h (205 mph). On this photo you can see dual formation "Sapsan" train, which has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest high-speed train in the world. Built by Siemens, 20-car Russian gauge train, which already holds the record of being the fastest train on Russia’s national rail network, measured 500 metres and 78 centimetres. (1/3 mile) In August, Russian Railways (RZD) began operating the dual formation Sapsan train to increase capacity on the Moscow-St Petersburg route.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
