China Debuts World’s Fastest Train

A maglev (‘magnetic levitation’) bullet train that can reach speeds of 600 kilometers per hour has debuted in Qingdao, China and is considered the world’s fastest train. Developed by the state-owned China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation, the train emits low levels of noise pollution and requires less maintenance than other high-speed trains according to authorities. A prototype of the train was unveiled in 2019. High-speed rail is becoming a priority in China, where the government is attempting to find a solution to reduce time and transport costs in the most populous country in the world.
