There is not much information published about the prototype. Maglev has a scale of 21 meters and engages in normal operation within three to ten years. “The area where we test the prototype is very rich in the minerals we need for magnetic cushion testing. This helps us accelerate development, ”said He Chuan, a professor at Southwest Jiaotong University, which works on train development.
China has the longest high-speed rail network in the world. It reaches 37 thousand kilometers. It is also a record in terms of speed. Between Beijing and Shanghai, the maglev levitates at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour and on the line connecting Shanghai Airport and the city even at a speed of 431 kilometers per hour. The Maglev is a state-of-the-art type of train that achieves high speeds by moving on an electromagnetic cushion.
The Chinese government wants to improve the railway infrastructure also in view of the upcoming Winter Olympics, which will be held in Shanghai in two years. Last year, therefore, it launched a new line between the city and the Olympic town of Changjia.
Japan still holds the record on the test track. In 2015, its maglev drove at a speed of 603 kilometers per hour. However, if the parameters of the new Chinese prototype are confirmed, the most populous country in the world could triumph in this category as well.
