That's quite fast,

I would NOT like to be standing trackside with that flying past, just one loose lump of ballast and that would be it, splat


I'd be trackside, but at a safe distance!!

Where I WOULDN'T want to be is IN the train during a derailment!!!!!


I think I would wait a few years before riding on them... I want to be sure of their safety! :D

Alstom, eh? Didn't/don't they do rebuilds here!?

Yes, and that would be the one thing to keep me off that train if I ever went there. I've ran a few of their prize rebuilds and lets just say, not pretty.
