The tests of the magnetic rail train, which Japan has been working on for a long time, are continuing. Maglev train technology has been under development for a long time. Especially Germany and Japan are countries that carry out important studies on this subject. The maglev train, also known as the magnetic levitation train, works with a system based on moving through the air magnetically. There are significant developments in the tests of maglev trains, which are seen as the public transportation vehicle of the future.

Finally, according to the news of Japan's Today, the Japanese maglev train managed to reach 500 km / h in the tests carried out between Tokyo and Nagoya. If the work carried out by the Central Japan Railway Company goes well, this project is expected to be implemented in 2027.

  1. First of all, you should give a source in the pictures. The image that you put is the German TRANSRAPID MagLev system (which is the world's first commercial / communal system) from LongYangRoad station to PIA in Shanghai (CN).
    Let's come to your Japanese MagLev news. Yes, it is certain that MagLev systems are and will be the public transportation system of the future. It is another fact that these systems are perhaps 100 years ahead of the development of general and guideway transportation systems. However, the v=500km/h vbg speeds reached in the tests are not a surprise. If there is enough power behind the system (infrastructure), it will do 500, 800 km/h. BUT, have you heard that a TGV and ICE system reached a similar operating speed and operated at this limit, just because such guideway transportation systems broke the physical + ECONOMIC speed limit = 400, even >500 km/h speed record for the time being? Beyond system tests, this is the cheapest prime time in the world, the MAIN NEWS bulletin, that is, the CHEAPEST ADVERTISING. Sellers (companies, countries) on the other hand, reach the largest audience worldwide, in this way, for the cheapest and in the most effective way, with such a positive image. kazanrivers. For this purpose, 5 – 20 million Dollars advertising costs are incurred without hesitation. Anyway, this process would have cost hundreds of times the normal way…

  2. The speed limit is> = 500 km / h. I'm sorry for the mistake.

  3. maglev has passed 500 km, so there may be a mistake in the news header
