China Unveils State of the Art Maglev Train Prototype Designed to Travel at 620km/ h
China has developed a magnetic railway capable of moving at 600 kilometres per hour. It is considered as the fastest train ever built by the country. It holds the world record for the fastest moving vehicle on land. The Chinese maglev project started in 2016, with a successful trial run scheduled for June 2020. The maglev train "levitates" above the track using electro-magnetic force, with no touch between body and rail.
China has inaugurated a new high-speed rail line from the eastern Chinese seaside city of Qingdao. China has been utilising the technology on a small basis for almost two decades.
