800 Series Shinkansen

The Shinkansen 800 Series (Japanese新 干线800系 电车, Shinkansen 800 -kei densha ) is a Japanese high-speed train since March 2004 by JR Kyushu on the track Kyushu Shinkansen is operated.

Technically, the top speed of the 800 series Shinkansen at 285 km / h indicated. Timetable default, the train with a maximum speed of 260 km / h on the road.



Since the series is 800 on the track Kyushu Shinkansen, which has many tunnels, operated, the designers have put a great deal of attention to a great feeling of space in the interior.

Kakifarben for walls, anti- clack for the doors, and traditional Kyushu curtains for windows and toilets were used. The seats are made of a wood / metal / plastic combination of other Shinkansen types.

The seating arrangement is always 2/2, with own wheelchair spaces and disabled toilets in two of the six cars.
