A Chinese city, Changsha, launched the country’s first locally made magnetically levitated (maglev) train.
Another Chinese city, Changchun, is getting ready to set into motion China’s first hybrid railway that can run on two or three different kinds of energy.
The maglev in Changsa city of China’s Hunan province is a middle-to-low speed train that will connect the local railway station to the airport across 18.55 kms. It will take 19 minutes and 30 seconds to cover the journey with just one stop in between. The train can go up to a maximum speed of 100 kms an hour carrying 365 passengers.
