Japan launches new Shinkansen bullet train
(CNN) – The latest record-breaking bullet train in Japan not only runs faster and smoother – it is also capable of transporting passengers to safe places in the event of an earthquake.
That N700S – ‘S’ stands for ‘Supreme’ – began operating July 1 and serves the Tokaido Shinkansen line, which connects Tokyo Station and Shin-Osaka Station in Osaka.

It can run up to 360 kilometers per hour, a new record set during trials in 2019, making it one of the fastest trains in the world. Operating speed, however, will be limited to 285 kilometers per hour.

This is the first new bullet train model to be added to the Tokaido Shinkansen line by the Central Japan Railway (JR Central) in 13 years, a launch originally scheduled to coincide with the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 – now postponed to 2021.

Coincidentally, Japan inaugurated the Tokaido Shinkansen line in 1964, connecting Tokyo and Osaka, just in time for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo that same year. It was the first high-speed railroad in the world.

Cutting-edge technology

Wise appearance N700S it doesn’t look too different from the older N700 or N700A models, apart from the elegant gold logo.

But look closely and you will see the new train has a more angular nose, chubbier “cheeks” and a sleeker design of lights.

On the inside, the newly designed seats allow passengers to lie down further, offering more comfort, especially for long distance riders. Each seat has its own power jack.

Interior lighting has been designed to create a softer and more relaxed atmosphere. The overhead luggage rack will light up at each stop to remind passengers of their belongings.

More reservation-specific storage areas for extra large luggage have been added to this model as well.

The actual journey will be much calmer and smoother, too, thanks to a new active suspension system that helps absorb train movements.

In addition to focusing on increasing comfort, the designer behind this new model emphasizes safety.

The train has an improved automatic brake and control system that allows it to stop faster in the event of an emergency.

It is also equipped with a self-propulsion lithium-ion battery system – the first of its kind in the world. This system allows the train to run at its own short distance during a power outage and will allow it to move to a safer location at low speed if stranded in high-risk areas – on bridges or tunnels, for example – during an earthquake.

More cameras have also been installed in the car compartment – an increase from two cameras to six in each train car.

Enhanced components will take up less space under the train floor compared to older models, allowing for more flexible configurations, from four to 16 cars. It also reduces energy consumption while speeding up production time, making it a more attractive choice for international operators.

“By making the mechanism under the N700S floor lighter and more compact, we are creating new standards,” Masayuki Ueno, deputy head of the JR Central railroad business department, told Japanese broadcasters NHK in an interview in 2019.

“This new standard will also help in developing our business overseas.”
