Shinkansen bullet trains of the E5 type are part of the new Hayabusa generation of Jᴀᴘᴀɴese high-speed trains, which started operating in March 2011. Tokyo and Aomori, which is located in Aomori Prefecture, are connected by high-speed rail in Jᴀᴘᴀɴ via the Tohoku Shinkansen. JR East has placed an order for 59 E5 ten-car sets, and deliveries started in March 2011.
Despite having a test run top speed of 400 km/h, the train’s top speed was reduced to 320 km/h in 2012 for passenger and environmental comfort. In comparison to older types, the new E5 series trains are intended to be faster and more pleasant. It’s intended to be a premium business-class automobile service. GranClass, a first-class lounge with opulent decor, is included.
The train has a 15-meter-long, wide snout in the front. The sound created when a train enters a tunnel quickly is eliminated due to insufficient air pressure, known as “tunnel boom.” Included is a full bogie cover that is soft enough to lessen aerodynamic noise. The machinery and sound-absorbing materials positioned underneath absorb a large portion of the mechanical noise produced when running.
The pantographs on the train sets already have sound insulators on both sides and are low-noise. These new train sets have one pantograph unit instead of two like older generations, which substantially lowers noise levels.
