    Turbojet Trains

    (1)The first attempt to use turbojet engines on a railroad was made by the New York Central Railroad in 1966. Their railcar M-497 was able to reach speeds up to 184 miles per hour(296 km/h).

    (2) The ER22 built in the USSR in 1970 was able to reach a speed of 250 kilometres per hour(160 mph)

    They both are Jet Powered trains.

    The Soviet Union and the US were in a race to get the fastest train ever. :)

    1 -> M-497 (nicknamed Black Beetle) was an experimental jet-powered locomotive test bed of the New York
    Central Railroad corporation, developed and tested in 1966 in the USA.

    The Russian train maker Kalininsky formed the Speed Wagon Laboratory and modified the chassis of one of their ER22 head engines to compete with 1.
