Weren't you filled with a great sense of pride when you saw videos of Train 18 scorching on the rails at a breakneck speed of 180 kmph? A feather in the cap to the 'Make in India' club, the Rs 100-crore indigenously-designed train also became the country's fastest train by being so hot on rails.
"Train 18 breached the 180 kmph speed limit in the Kota-Sawai Madhopur section. The major trials are now over with just some more remaining. Based on the reports fine tuning would be done if needed. As of now, no major technical problem has cropped up," S Mani, general manager of Integral Coach Factory that manufactured the train had said.
minister Piyush Goyal, who's often faster than the fastest running train on Twitter, also shared a video on 2 December showing how a few bottles of water didn't spill over despite Train 18 hurtling at a speed not known in India's railway history.
जोर स्पीड का झटका धीरे से लगा: Train 18 exceeds 180kmph during trial. The stability of water bottles at this speed is testament to the quality of workmanship and design of our engineers

Train 18 is indeed an engineering marvel but the dragon in our neighbourhood wasn't too generous to appreciate. The result: People's Daily of China came up with its own video with a "coin to balance on the top of a pen!" on a high-speed Chinese train on Monday.
Just how steady is China's high-speed train? Well, steady enough for a coin to balance on the top of a pen!

Probably, sightseeing out of the windows would be better rather than balancing bottles and coins in both the trains.
