It's a far cry from the hot and sweaty commuter crush endured by millions of train travellers daily.
But this futuristically sleek, aerodynamic and downright sexy train is the way in which the backers of a new high speed rail link across Britain think travellers should be transported at speeds of up to 225mph within 15 years.
With an interior more reminiscent of a luxury penthouse apartment, comfortable sofas with cushions and soft furnishings, airy glass modules fitted with computer screens, a storage space for folding bicycles, and a well stocked bar, glass modules, and a double decker observation deck, it is far removed from the experience of most rail travellers.
