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 locomotive-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.
In these tables, two maximum speeds are given: the column "Normal" refers to the maximum speed reached by the train in commercial operations, while the column "Design" refers to the theoretical maximum speed in commercial operations as announced by the manufacturer. In some cases, a third "Record" speed is also listed.
