France breaks world speed record for rail trains

A high-speed French train with a souped-up engine and wheels broke the world speed record Tuesday for conventional rail trains, surpassing 570 kph (354.1 mph).

The black-and-chrome train with three double-decker cars, named the V150, bettered the previous record of 515.3 (320.2 mph) but fell just short of the ultimate record set by Japan's magnetically levitated train, which sped to 581 kph (361 mph) in 2003.
