China unveils maglev train that cruises at 373 miles per hour

(Source: Freight Waves, July 21, 2019)

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — China’s state-owned train manufacturer, the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), has unveiled a maglev train that clocks a maximum speed of 373 miles per hour. With the promised speed, the MagLev train can transport passengers from Beijing to Shanghai in around three and a half hours, roughly an hour faster than the time it takes to fly from Beijing to Shanghai. In addition, when the time it takes to board and deboard an airplane are added to the time of a journey, the flight may be much longer than the one on a maglev train.
