High Speed Train

The High Speed Train, HS2, seems to be a wheeled improvement of existing trains, that will go a bit faster than an express, and to do that, it requires its own railway line.
Over fifty years ago, Japan had an operational 'Bullet train', it went a lot faster than any other train, it was quiet, comfortable, and always on time. I know this, I travelled in it.
Why don't we suspend HS2 and send half a dozen young engineers over to Japan, let them look at how this was done, and come back here to build a better one?
Building a better Britain needs to jump across conventional methods, use the best ideas; and not just with trains!
