China has unveiled a prototype of the fastest trains in the world. It is reported by Tech Exprorist.
According to the project designers, the train will move through magnetic levitation (method of moving object using only one magnetic field — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) and will be able to reach the speed of 600 kilometers per hour. The first train developed by the Chinese national railway Corporation, was released from the Assembly lines of the plant in Qingdao.
Manufacturers claim that running trains completely changed the idea of the journey. “Let’s take as an example the distance between Beijing and Shanghai. Taking into account the time of preparation for the journey to overcome it by air will take about 4.5 hours or 5.5 hours by rail. The new train this time will be reduced to 3.5 hours”, — said the head of the research group engineer Ding San San.
Government plans to run a train in 2021.
To date, the fastest Chinese train “Fuxing”, which runs between Beijing and Shanghai, are able to move with a speed of 350 kilometers per hour. It launched in September 2017. In Beijing the trains start from the South railway station, Shanghai station Hongqiao. Journey time is four hours 28 minutes.
