Remarks & Notes 
Power car, Shinkansen Leading Car 22-141, 'bullet train', built by West Japan Railways, 1976, withdrawn from service in October 2000. The Shinkansen power car 22.141 is the last to be withdrawn of the first series of cars in service. It is the first rail vehicle built and operated outside of Britain to enter the National Collection. It tells the story of a railway which shaped the future for railways around the world. With the 1964 launch of the Shinkansen - which translates as new main line - Japan reinvented passenger railways. After it was withdrawn from service in 2000, the Shinkansen was generously donated to the National Collection by JR West. Before arriving in the UK, it was fully restored to its present condition by over one hundred JR West workers. The Shinkansen in the National Collection is the only bullet train outside of Japan. On the left the front of a new AT300 highspeed train of Hitachi for the UK.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
