It was supposed to make the elusive dream of HIGH-SPEED TRAVEL OF PASSENGERS USING THE RAILWAYS happen. And it DID! The dream which made railways competitive (even with air traffic!) became reality when the world’s first high-speed railway line called SHINKANSEN, between TOKYO AND OSAKA, opened for traffic in autumn of 1964. This is the story about WHY and HOW did this happen. - If you enjoyed this video please SHARE it with your rail-loving friends to help us raise our community, and of course leave your opinion in the COMMENT section and hit the LIKE button. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► Stay connected with us on social media: - Facebook: https://facebook.com/RailwaysExplained/ - Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/railways_ex... igshid=k0tv5loew79e&fbclid=IwAR0Ix2jPPbcUwhArt_iym9vzKgvrUQaLLH_4JkhILyzyY_upCyxTf5qxcwA - Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/railways-... #Railways #Shinkansen #Trains
