Operating top speeds of 186mph and tested to 361mph (!!!).

Possibly best of all:

“The Shinkansen is very reliable, and in 2003, JR Central reported that the Shinkansen’s average arrival time was within six seconds of the scheduled time. This includes all natural and human accidents and errors and is calculated over roughly 160,000 Shinkansen trips completed.”

My roommate’s vacationing in Japan.  I’m jealous.  Maybe some Amtrak officials should follow suit…
