  CONK! Encyclopedia: Shinkansen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
When building the Shinkansen network, it was not often feasible to build the line to connect to an already existing station and therefore a new second station was built.
Shinkansen trains now run regularly at speeds of up to 300 km/h (185 mph), putting them among the fastest trains running in the world, along with the French TGV, Spanish AVE and German ICE trains.
Despite this, there are two planned speed increases, one to 350 km/h for new trains on the Sanyo line, and one to 360 km/h using the FASTECH 360 trains currently in testing on the Tohoku Shinkansen.

In 1972, Shinkansen was extended to Okayama, and in 1975, Hakata (Fukuoka) in Kyushu Island.
Shinkansen might be extend to other cities such as Sakata, Matsue, Takamatsu, Matsuyama and Oita by introduction of eMini Shinkansenf or the development of free-gauge train currently under experiment which can change gauge from 1435 mm to 1067 mm and go direct from Shinkansen to conventional rail line.

The Sanyo line was designed as part of the eventual nationwide shinkansen network, with a nominal design speed of 260 km/h and minimum curve radii of 4,000 m.
Sanyo services are operated by 6-car 0 series and 100 series sets, and 4-car 100 series sets, all of which have no green class accommodation.

 Railway Technology - Shinkansen High Speed 'Bullet Train' operated by JR Central, Japan
Shinkansen run largely on conventional steel rail mounted on concrete sleepers, but the fastest services use dedicated tracks to avoid conflict with slower trains.
Shinkansen trains run on two different gauges - 1,067mm and 1,435mm - which precludes each part of the system from using the other's trains.
The next candidate is the 59km of the Nagano Shinkansen from Nagano to Joetsu, with plans existing to eventually extend this to Komatsu via Toyama and Kanazawa.

Earthquake is a very dangerous factor to the Shinkansen which runs at a high speed, and various quake-resistance systems have been introduced.
As a result, the seismic capacity of the Sanyo Shinkansen was greatly improved.
The first one is that the peak speed at which the Shinkansen currently runs is 270-300 kph as a result of speed competition.

 Bambooweb: Kokura
Kokura (小倉;) was an ancient castle town guarding, via its suburb Moji, the Straits of Shimonoseki between Honshu and Kyushu in Japan.
Now part of the modern city of Kitakyushu, it is also the name of the penultimate station on the southbound Sanyo Shinkansen line.
Kokura was the primary target of the nuclear weapon "Fat Man" on August 9, 1945, but since the city had been obscured by clouds and Major Charles Sweeney of the Bockscar had orders to drop the bomb visually, they moved on to Nagasaki, the secondary target, where they dropped their lethal weapon.
