East Japan Railway Co. on Thursday unveiled to the media the completed test model for next-generation shinkansen bullet trains.
The 10-carriage ALFA-X train has a sleek 22-meter nose on the No. 10 car and a 16-meter nose on the No. 1 car. JR East will analyze pressure and sound differences between the two noses when the train enters tunnels to determine the most suitable design.
