We have some really ugly trains but don't you DARE making fun of that koploper ('head walker') right there!

That huge nose used to house a highly advanced automated gangway connection. Many intercity trains here split at a certain station with both halfs continueing to a different destination, and conventional gangway connections took too much time and manpower to couple. So in the 70's the Dutch Railways developed these trains that coupled and connected themselfs, so combinations could be split and rejoined in less than 30 seconds with a push on a button: https://youtube.com/watch?v=mIi2CDYG7jc

In the end passengers and staff didn't use the gangways that much so they were eventually removed to save on maintenance costs, but they are still proud trains and when people see their noses they're like 'yeah, you saved us a lot of time on stations! good boy!'"

Nah, I just think that anything running on Japanese railways after the Series 200 is butt ugly. Like they're all weird and alien, or just look like they were designed by a man who had no concept of aesthetics.

Compare that to French TGVs. The Duplex/Euroduplex, the POS, the Réseau, the Atlantique and the TMST/British Rail Class 373 are all nice looking high speed trains which have a level of nice aesthetic.

The German ICE trains are also really great in their aesthetics.

Thank all the tunnels on the newer Shinkansen routes for that. The increasingly bizzare looking schnozzes on the Shinkansen sets are all about minimizing those sudden uncomfortable pressure increases that passengers feel every time a HST enters a tunnel.

With the exception of the Chunnel, most of HST-traversed Europe is as flat as a pizza compared to Japan, and as a result their HST designers were able to focus more on aesthetics than anything else, just as the origina HST designers for the Tokaido Shinkansen were.

The rest of the Shinkansen's weirdness just stems from the Japanese and their autistic pursuit of efficiency, which is why you see shit like those skirts covering the bogies and the aerodynamic baffles around the gaps between coaches and the pantographs. They're really the ultimate evolution of track-based HST design, but like a 3rd-stage Guild navigator they've evolved so spectacularly thanks to all the lessons learned from 50+ years of high speed running that they barely resemble trains anymore."

This is a weird thing to me, since I can tell you that European rail has adapted a lot more to tunnels than you think.
Japan might be far more mountainous, but there are still plenty of areas where HSR goes through a lot of tunnels. The Channel Tunnel is different as that's a sea tunnel, but the solution that all European rail has come to is basically to do the same thing that planes do, pressurise the cabin.
New TGV and ICE designs feature pressurised cabins, and although that might sound like over-engineering, the idea is more to keep sea level pressure constant in the train when going through tunnels (when pressure increases) and if the train goes to a higher altitude, the trains will also maintain a sea level pressure. Any changes in pressure would be gentle and not as sudden.
Though I think you talking about tunnels being rare in Europe is a mistake in my opinion. You see, I once took a DB InterCity train from Hannover to Würzburg. The landscape is gentle rolling hills, but to create a straight track, they had to build a lot of viaducts and tunnels. In an unpressurised InterCity carriage, the feeling in your ears is horrible. I actually hated going through those tunnels because of how sudden the pressure changes were. An ICE though won't give you the same feeling since it has a pressurised cabin.
Same thing with the TGV trains. The e320 Velaro GB (British Rail Class 374) has a fully pressurised cabin, while the e300 TGV TMST (British Rail Class 373) only pressurises the individual cars while in the Channel Tunnel with additional pressure doors between train cars.
The way European trains can do this is with plug doors, much like the doors airliners use. Japanese HSR still uses sliding doors."

As for the passenger locos, it's because most of them don't turn around often enough for it to be worthwhile. The long-distance Amtrak locos will be facing one direction for hundreds of miles. You'll notice that the ones they have on the short-haul lines in the Northeast DO have two cabs."

The same forces that cause tunnel boom are responsible for excess pressure in the passenger areas while in tunnels. Shinkansens are pressurized, too, and their nose weirdness has more to do with the smaller cross-sections of Japanese high-speed tunnels relative to Europe's than anything else. Europe has fewer higj speed tunnels, so it's easier to build the ones they DO have wider to accommodate high speed running. Japan OTOH is the equivalent of trying to build HSR in the Scottish Highlands, and as a result they have tunnels everywhere, meaning that the cost savings of going smaller-bore might be the thing that makes the difference between financial success or failure for a given line."

Yup. See, the Taiwan HSR is the mutant bastardchild of the Shinkansen and TGV (the tracks are built to European standards, but the trains are Shinkansen) and has the wider tunnels because of it. Thus, no duck bill nose."

They shafted Europe though.
Taiwan was set to buy the Eurotrain, basically TGV Duplex carriages with ICE 2 power cars. Then they switched to Shinkansen last minute.
Siemens, GEC and Alstom took the Taiwanese to court and they got damages for the contract they cancelled at last minute.
Legacy of it though, is that Taiwan's HSR was run by French TGV and German ICE train drivers for several years while Taiwan was still training its own drivers. Not only that, but the catenary, signalling, track construction and operation rules were done by German and French contractors using European train rules, not Japanese.

I'm not so sure about parity with the Shinkansen.
Comparing the two train types will get you a weird variation of different results, and a big element of this comes from different design philosophies combined with national psyche.
I would say that while the 0 Series Shinkansen was probably the one that pioneered high speed rail in the first place, France definitely moved in to taking not only the record of fastest train, but also fastest train in service once the TGV started being used.
On the N700, those were built from 2005 onwards, while the ICE 3 was built from 2000 onwards...
Then, if we start talking about top speeds, the N700 can only reach a service top speed of 300 km/h, while the ICE 3 can reach a service top speed of 330 km/h.

But, again, the design philosophies are different. While the ICE 3 is designed around power and speed, the N700 is designed more around aerodynamics and effiency. The nature of the HSR for both trains are also different. Japan's "New Branch Line" (translation of Shinkansen) are just straight lines as far as they can do it, while Germany has little in the way of such rail lines for a variety of reasons. The N700 serves the Nozomi and Hikari services, while the ICE 3 does anything and everything, from running slower 200 km/h lines, to serving international routes to Belgium, France and the Netherlands. The N700 is limited to serving high speed lines and Shinkansen train stations, while the ICE 3 really can just go to any train station it needs to go.
Basically:
N700: dedicated high speed train optimised for the lines it serves
ICE 3: all purpose long distance train designed for operation on multiple electrification standards and multiple signalling systems and can run on virtually any German, Swiss, Austrian, French, Belgian and Dutch train line"

My bad, I'm still a little rough on my Shinkansen designations, but was talking about the original 700 series, which was still light-years ahead of the 90s ICE/TGV sets in terms of the spread of technologies involved and in terms of actual performance.

As for technology, I'd argue that Japan held the HSR edge in the 60s and 70s, while the lead shifted to Europe in the 80s with the TGV Sud Est/Atlantique and the ICE 1, and that Japan reclaimed the edge in the 90s with the 500 and 700 sets, but that since the ICE 3 entered service, the edge has stuck with Europe ever since while Japan's rolling stock has stayed relatively static and anachronistic, witness the E5/E6 and the N700, which are really just tweaks to the basic 700 design."

I'd say that the edge is currently going to go to Japan just because the Japanese have decided to build a maglev line, and they are getting the L0 Series Skinkansen trains ready.
Those will be going speeds of 500 km/h in service speeds.
Meanwhile in Europe, construction of 400 km/h capable lines will start soon, and right now the only train that can do 400 km/h in service would be the AGV.

I honestly think that maglevs, and the L0 are a bit of a meme. I mean, who the hell has the capital to build a 500 km long maglev line? Plus, there's the added issue of possible profit issues, which I doubt would be a thing in Japan, since the mentality towards public transport is just so much different, but if you were to build a maglev system in Europe, well, so many issues just arise overnight. First the people calling it a boondoggle, then the NIMBYs, then there's the issue of getting the money to build such a complicated system for such a distance, then there's how you're going to run it and then, finally, the fare system for such a thing.
Japan is lucky in so much as it just isn't a country that is well adapted to having a lot of domestic flights, or budget airlines, really. Meanwhile, in Europe, DB, SNCF, Renfe, Thalys, Eurostar, SNCB, SBB and Trenitalia have to legitamately compete against Ryanair and easyJet, possibly even smaller budget airlines too.
I'm not even going to start talking about North America, because they haven't even adoped HSR in the first place, at least, not really.

I honestly doubt the SCMaglev system will be implemented beyond 2-3 lines in Japan, mostly as there's just so much in the way of existing rail infrastructure and the fact that to build new maglev lines, they would need to deconstruct the conventional rail first."

Yeah, the AGV is sexy AF and it definitely holds a technological edge, albeit a slim one, over the E5/H5 and E6 or the N700, although I have no doubt that the Japanese could pull off a powered Jacobs bogie if they wanted to.

I honestly wonder why they haven't tried yet, but then again, the Shinkansen sets can accelerate like subway cars, and part of me wonders if the JRs haven't tried going to Jacobs bogies because it would essentially halve the number of powered axles per train and they don't want to lose any of that insane acceleration that their schedules are built around.

Also, I agree with you, theres no way that the maglev Shinkansen will ever see territory beyond paralleling the Tokaido Shinkansen. Though who knows, they probably said the same thing about the Series 0 Shinkansen technology in 1964. Once Nagoya becomes a commuter suburb to Tokyo and Osaka and everyone sees what the maglev can do to far-flung cities, all bets are off.

There's a reason why Hitachi is so bullish about self-financing the demo line between Baltimore and DC. Once Baltimore Penn Station is the same travel time by rail (err, by "rail"), from DC Union Station as Silver Spring and Bethesda are, other states will be frothing at the mouth to build their own versions of it, and I'll bet money that you see Virginia chomping at the bit to at least extend it to MacLean, Reston, and Dulles, if not to Richmond."

But will it be a proper edge in reality?
That's my point. SCMaglev is, right now, an unproven technology. Transrapid was said to be the future of everything as a monorail maglev. They were going to build a Transrapid line from Berlin to Hamburg and from München Hauptbahnhof to München Airport.
Now, Shanghai has the only Transrapid line, with 2 stops, from Longyang Road to Shanghai Pudong Airport. That has a top speed of 431 km/h, and that did give China the edge.... with an expensive, loss making maglev that has little purpose is is more of a prestige thing than really an actual public transport service.

I would view the SCMaglev as an uproven technology since it is so limited to one line. If it's sucessful and can be seen in use across Japan, sure. If it does one line to Osaka and that's it, then I will see it as a nice piece of technology, but economically flawed."

>I honestly wonder why they haven't tried yet
I've heard It's due to maintenance issues. With the current shinkansen sets, you only need to detach the semi-permanent coupling to separate the cars. With a Jacobs bogie, you need a lot of specialized equipment.
Add to that fact that a powered Jacobs bogie would require you to worry about all that wiring as well, and you can see why they'd be hesitant to adopt that design."

It's not just Hitachi, it's also the Japanese government seeimgly willing to finance the whole line's construction.

I think the reality will be that this won't ever happen.
First, the FRA will come down with a ton of weird regulations which are really only relevant for freight trains, but will demand that the SCMaglev will have this because it's a "railroad" legally.
Second, the Trump administration might not like the idea of a foreign company doing things for the US. I think this could become more of a political decision, and that the administration just cancels it.
Third, the NIMBYs will go fucking nuclear. I'm not joking about this, they will demand that the entire line is built underground or on some weird long scenic route into the middle of nowhere. Both can happen, and both can be the result of some serious court battles. Building HSR along the NEC is just difficult because demolishing houses and businesses to build a new dedicated HSR line just isn't worth it. You're looking at something like $3 million per foot, and that's enough to make the US Government say no (while at the same time sinking severall billion $ into some defence R&D project that gets delayed and eventually cancelled for cost overrun).
Morgantown got a Personal Rapid Transit system, built by Boeing and the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, and in the 1970s, it was said that every town and city on the East Coast and Midwest would be lining up to get one of these things. Now, Boeing and NASA aren't interested in building a PRT system, and it's down to Thales, a French defence and rail signalling manufacturer to upgrade the system to a modern system, at least in terms of the electronics.
I'm guessing that if SCMaglev does get built, it won't ever be reproduced for the sheer cost.

There already are NIMBY battles, but given how tight Trump and Abe are, I could very easily see El Donaldo getting on board as a prestige project, especially since he's such a /n/erd IRL. But yeah, the NIMBY battles have already begun, but so far it's nothing of real significance given how ratchet the areas that are against the maglev are. Baltimore has a ton of political power in this state, and Baltimore will be desperate for anything that makes it better and more competitive, and the state-level politicians' desires to keep the Baltimore political machine happy will probably outweigh any of the concerns of shitty neighborhoods like Laurel or Halethorpe.

As for the FRA, who knows, but if the political desire is there, I'm sure they'll play ball, especially since they've been willing to look the other way with similar stuff like monorails, the Morgantown PRT, etc."

Baltimore isn't the concern, DC is. DC will be where NIMBYs will have the actual money to challenge a lot of stuff in court. And I'm not sure if Abe is willing to pay off the American people.

As for the FRA, I'm curious to know, does the FRA do anything about metro systems? I mean, do FRA regulations apply to the DC Metro, the NYC Subway, the Chicago "L", the BART, etc?"

They don't, because subways are considered to be self-contained systems.

As for NIMBYS, from what I gather the maglev will run through Northeast DC which is shitty and poor, but also has tons of industrial-ish corridors for the maglev to run through. What I do know is that it'll almost certainly be doing the last 5 or so miles underground on both ends."

Fun fact. NS originally ran their locos ass first because of dieselization. Engineers were still used to steam locomotives so that's why the long way went forward (as in the picture you posted). At least that's what the urban legend I was told was."

The current NS was formed by the merger of NW and SOU, which both preferred long hood forward operations and ordered locos with high short hoods and control stands designed for such operations. NS switched rather quickly to short hood forward operation, and now a significant number of high short hood locos are either off the roster or rebuilt with low short hoods. The idea behind long hood forward operation was placing as much metal between any track obstructions and the engineer/conductor as possible. Now with the prevalence of safety cabs and the operating challenges of running long hood forward, NS is about 30 years past their long hood days."

No real reason to have dual cabs when every terminal has a turntable or a wye (or they make up new consists with a locomotive that's already turned the right direction). On road switchers and locals, they'll often get two GPs with each pointed in the opposite direction."
