Pod Train Inspired by those Japanese capsule hotels, the JIYUKŪKAN high speed rail system packs personal pod modules in which travelers can sleep, relax or just hang out on the 500-800 mile journey. Like the capsule hotels, each train packs a number of showers so users are well-rested and fresh-faced when they arrive at their destination. Passengers can get on with their day upon arriving without the lag feeling of lost time!
Walk the Roof of an Underground Rail Station, China (2) - Slated to become the world's largest underground high-speed rail station when it's completed in 2015, the Express Rail Link West Kowloon Terminus is a marvel.

It was designed by Andrew Bromberg of architecture firm Aedas.
