A Chinese passenger train hit a speed of 302 miles per hour (486 kilometers per hour) during a test run Friday on a route between Beijing and Shanghai that is expected to open in 2012.

China's Xinhua News Agency said it was a record for an unmodified, conventional commercial train.

China already has the world's longest high-speed rail network, and it plans to cover 8,125 miles (13,000 kilometers) by 2012 and 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) by 2020.
