Historic Note: High Speed Rail in Canada versus Europe & Japan

High Speed Rail Canada is a citizens' advocacy group dedicated to making the public and other stakeholders aware of the potential for high speed rail in Canada. Their website is a great portal to prior studies and well as other web based resource for those interested in the potential of high speed rail in Canada. Click here to visit their website.
Click here to view quite an interesting video of the evolution of high speed rail in Europe. Hopefully, despite the long intercity distances, we too will experience such high speed rail travel in North America in the near future.
Finally, below is an interesting video documenting the retirement of the Type 500 Shinkansen train from Japan's TOKAIDO main line. These trains have been operating at speeds of 300 kilometres per hour in the western part of Japan since 1997.
