High speed train is a railway vehicle that provides the opportunity to travel faster than normal trains. High-speed trains are defined as travel speed of 200 km / h and above on old rails in the world, and 250 km / h and above trains in newly installed lines. These trains can generally travel at a speed of less than 200 km / h on conventional (old system) rails and over 200 km / h on high speed train rails. Most high speed train systems have a number of characteristics in common. Most of them are powered by electricity from the lines on the train. However, this does not apply to all high-speed trains, as some high-speed trains run on diesel. A more precise definition concerns the nature of the rails. High-speed rail tracks consist of rails welded along the line to reduce vibration and prevent openings between rail segments. In this way, trains can pass smoothly at a speed of 200 km per hour.
