The Shanghai Maglev Train is a magnetic levitation train (maglev) line that operates in Shanghai. It operates between Pudong International Airport and Longyang Road. At full speed, the journey takes 7 minutes and 20 seconds to complete the distance of 30 km (18.6 miles).

The top operational commercial speed of this train is 431 km/h (268 mph), making it the world's fastest train in regular commercial service since its opening in April 2004. During a non-commercial test run on 12 November 2003, a maglev train achieved a speed of 501 km/h (311 mph). The Shanghai Maglev has a length of 153m, a width of 3.7m, a height of 4.2m and has seating for 574 passengers.

The distance from Longyang Road station in Shanghai to Pudong International Airport is 30 Km. The journey lasted 7 minutes and 11 seconds, the train reached its top speed of 431 Kph in 2 minutes 22 seconds. A great ride and a beautiful train, I especially loved the banked curves.

Transrapidunfall von Lathen / Lathen maglev catastrophe 2006:

 

The Lathen train collision occurred on 22 September 2006 when a Transrapid magnetic levitation (or "maglev") train collided with a maintenance vehicle near Lathen, Germany, killing 23 people. This was the first ever fatal accident on a maglev train.

****************

Der Transrapidunfall von Lathen war der weltweit folgenschwerste Unfall einer Einschienenbahn. Am 22. September 2006 kamen auf der Transrapid-Versuchsanlage Emsland bei Lathen 23 Menschen ums Leben und zehn weitere wurden verletzt.

OK, stop dawdling, board the Maglev. The equipment is looking a tad worn in the interior compartments.

 

In 2003, the maglev was enrolled by Guinness Records to be the fastest train in the world in commercial use.

 

Basically, there are two main elements in a maglev system including its vehicle and the guideway. The three primary functions in maglev technology are levitation, propulsion, and guidance. Magnetic forces perform all of these.

 

Once the train is levitated, power is supplied to the coils within the guideway walls to create a unique system of magnetic fields that pull and push the train along the guideway.

 

The electric current supplied to the coils in the guideway walls is constantly alternating to change the polarity of the magnetized coils moving the cars along the guideway.

  

A Maglev train approaches Longyang Road Maglev station in Shanghai, simply awesome. The Shanghai Maglev Train or Shanghai Transrapid is a magnetic levitation train that operates in Shanghai, China. The line is the first commercially operated high-speed magnetic levitation line in the world.

The ST100 Maglev is the preferred way to get around the surface of Planet Frost. Powered by a Cyclonic Fusion core, the 5 car consist is capable of reaching speeds in excess of 700 mph. Boasting a smooth ride and luxurious accomodations, the ST100 is popular among locals and visitors alike.

 

The ST100 is powered with Power Functions. The model features 16 3mm LEDs. This is the first element of a large space display I'm (slowly) working on.

So there's your wagon combo:

1 - Loco-papa in his locomotive

2 - Tanker car (contents unspecified)

3 - Main weapon: artillery gun

4 - Ammo cart

5 - Crew wagon

 

AA missiles are mounted between #1 and #2

While in Shanghai last year, we wanted to experience the Maglev train, so took a return trip to Pudong airport. The train only goes at the top speed at certain times of the day and unfortunately we weren't there at that time. From memory it went about 310km/hr when we were on it.

I filmed the other one passing and I still jump every time I watch this video.

Currently the only commercial Maglev train in the world and the fastest of any kind; 431 km/h. Running from Pudong airport and to Shanghai. Up close it looks like a slightly tattered movie prop but make no mistake, the speed is blinding!

Three world record breaking trains in the entrance hall of the SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, Nagoya-Shi, Aichi-Ken, Japan.

 

Class C62 Steam Locomotive - the biggest and fastest steam locomotive in Japan manufactured for express and super express trains. During a running test in 1954, this C62 17 achieved the world high speed record of 129km/hr in the category of the steam locomotive on the narrow gauge.

 

300X Shinkansen (class 955 Experimental Shinkansen) - developed in the pursuit of the ultimate in high-speed railway systems. In 1996, this set the world high-speed record at that time of 443km/hr in the category of the Electric Multiple Unit.

 

MLX01-1 Superconducting Maglev - in 2003 the Superconducting Maglev attained the world high-speed record at that time of 581km/hr for the railway at the Yamanashi Maglev Test Line.

Commuters boarding Shanghai Maglev Train - "bullet train" in Shanghai, China. It travels at speed of 430 km/h - or 280 mph. (It was a smooth ride, even at that speed!). This futuristic magnetic levitation train is the currently the world's fastest passenger train.
