BULLET TRAIN E6 SERIES

新幹線E6系[SHIKANSEN ĪROKUKEI]

Max. speed: 320 km/h (on Shinkansen tracks)
Route: Tokyo – Akita

These trains, also known as “mini-Shinkansen,” are unique in that they run both on conventional tracks and high-powered Shinkansen tracks, which was made possible by widening the conventional tracks to the standard Shinkansen gauge of 1,435 mm. They can run as fast as 320 km/h on Shinkansen tracks as well as maneuver through curves on conventional tracks.
