The Maglev – The fastest train in the world!

Watch what happens when the train going in the other direction passes – WOW!.. enlarge video >>

We boarded the Maglev, short for magnetic levitation, train for a ride on the fastest train in the world.

Instead of rails the train floats, or levitates, on a magnetic field. China is a pioneer in this technology. While on our run out to the airport The Maglev *only* made it up to 301 kilometers per hour, just short of 200 miles per hour, but it has obtained a record speed of 501 km/h (311 mph) on a test run.
