In China, which has advanced high-speed train technology in recent years, a new maglev train that goes at 600 kilometers per hour has been introduced. According to the news of the Chinese state media, the train, which works with the electromagnetic system and therefore goes in the air without rubbing against the iron rails, will be produced in the coastal city of China (Qingdao), east of the capital of the country, Beijing.
The maglev train, which will become the "world's fastest public transportation vehicle" if it is officially put into service, aims to reduce the distance of approximately 2000 kilometers between Shanghai, the largest city in China, and Chengdu province, located in the central part of the country, to 3.5 hours.
It's incredible! My God, 600km/h, this is a land aircraft😲😲😲.

If the maglev train is used at a distance of approximately 1000 kilometers between Beijing and Shanghai, the high-speed train services that normally take 6 hours will be reduced to 2.5 hours.
Maglev trains have been in use for over 20 years in Shanghai, China's largest city, a short distance between the city center and Pudong International Airport. Thanks to these flights, the journey between the airport and the city center takes only 4-5 minutes.
