The new China's Maglev Train

China revealed a prototype of a high-speed maglev train, capable of speeds of up to 600 km/h.

Maglev trains use magnetic repulsion to levitate the train up from the ground, to reduces friction, and to propel it forward.



At present only China, South Korea and Japan operate maglev trains.
