That train is zipping by at 374 miles per hour! Though the train is only in its testing phase now, Japan Railway hopes to bring these vehicles to the public by 2027.

You may remember Boaty McBoatface, the potential name of a very expensive research vessel that was open to public suggestions. Well, it started to look like the majority vote wouldn't choose the name of that ship so a train in southern England decided to show solidarity and give their train a name. 

A spokesperson for the company explained to The Evening Standard that, "It is a one-off by one of our creative guards who wanted to bring a smile to the face of our customers". So sadly, taking the Trainy McTrainface home from work won't become a regular thing.
