I still really like the unique exterior look of the (now derated) 500 series but I share no love for Hello Kitty and that Teletubby rubbish can burn in hell. :lol:

I feel so bad for that Talgo cab that I genuinely pity it.  :(

Not quite a bullet train, but have you seen the movie "Snowpiercer"? That train is the opposite of cute.
