The following is a
list of high-speed trains, limited to conventional wheeled trains, that have been, are, or will be in commercial service.
A high-speed train is one intended for regular operations at speeds of over 200 km/h (125 mph), with a high level of service, and generally comprising multi-powered elements.
Standard hauled trains, often able to reach 200 km/h, such as French Corail or German IC trains, unconventional trains, such as maglev and transrapid, and prototypes are excluded.
Operated speed is the maximum speed currently reached by the train in commercial operations. The design speed is the theoretical maximum speed in commercial operations.
