I saw this top speed run in a program on Discovery a long time ago and yes normal running would be in the 250-300 range.
As for TOI much less said the better, especially about its catchy headlines thing

You'd unconsciously do no.2 even if you were on the track just for no.1 if you got a glimpse of 400 tonnes of metal coming at you at 500kmph!

Dude....gave the wrong title.... I was sure its a typo. Anyway, I've taken the TGV a few times.. yes its max speed is 515.3kmph but due to obvious reasons it doesn't go that fast. Usually, max speed is around the 220 km mark.. It is pretty comfortable though.
The meglev in Shangai....actually travels faster than this.....I'm not sure of the exact numbers but it does travel at around around 440 km/h every time it runs ! since there's no cotact between the actual train and its tracks, it can afford to go faster .
