World Speed Record 1990

I'd hope most people still remembered that breathtaking world speed record run of the TGV V150 in April 2007. I was in college at the time. I still remember the excitement I felt rushing home in order to stream the event live. Thanks to technology, many things we once have had to hear second hand can be witnessed at the happening. Thanks to YouTube, many things that have happened before us can be relived by a few keystrokes and clicks of the mouse.

Let's rewind to 18 May 1990, when the TGV Atlantique no 325 has set the world speed record for trains at the time of 515.3 km/h. That's still a jaw dropping speed of 320 mph even for today.

Enjoy this video from the French National Railways' official YouTube channel.
