30 Terrific Train Innovations

From Palace-Resembling Transport to Ferrari-Designed Trains

— March 29, 2014 — Autos
Train innovations come in a variety of forms, from eco-friendly transport ideas to trains conceived by the famous Ferrari car brand. While this mode of transportation dates back to the 1800s, it is still around today and constantly receiving updates on a number of fronts.

High speed trains are a huge development in the last decade, with many reaching up to 300 MPH. This means that people can get to where they want to go in less time, and also become more efficient themselves. Other train innovations include designs that can pick up trash from the railway, and others that have an almost palace-like design.

These trains demonstrate how the world is constantly moving forward and coming up with better solutions to make transportation more efficient and eco-friendly.
