Probably worth remembering that in the 1990s the MOR had a huge debate whether Beijing-Shanghai should be maglev or conventional rail, and this debate ragged for years, slowing down the start date of the line.
And now Japan is needing a second line Tokyo-Osaka - and building air pressure, 505 km/h maglev.

new 350KM/H,or called standard bullet train,with the same cockpit and most of parts,to reduce the cost for maintain.
So, it is this baby?

Changsha maglev project, the first low-speed maglev line in China that has independent intellectual property rights, will be completed and go into trial operation by the end of 2015.

Upon its completion, the distance between Changsha South High-speed Railway Station and the T2 terminal in Huanghua Airport will be reduced to 10 minutes. The project will transform the Changsha South Station into a comprehensive transportation hub, ensuring seamless transfer among maglev, subway, and high-speed rail.

More importantly, it means that the city of Changsha will take the lead in building itself into a modern integrated transportation hub with high-speed rail, air traffic, inter-city rail, low-speed maglev, subway, as well as highway.

“The Changsha maglev project will draw on the management experience from similar projects in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea. And advanced technologies from both home and abroad will be put into use for its construction,” said Wu Xiangming, chief adviser to the Changsha maglev project, who used to be the head of Shanghai maglev project.

Wu said that the low-speed maglev has the advantages of being safer and quieter, with smaller turning radius, better climbing ability, as well as low cost. At present, the Changsha maglev project has completed accumulative investments of 1.5 billion yuan ($ 241.44 million).

The project has established strong scientific research and consulting teams and carries out close technological cooperation with several institutions and universities in conquering multiple technical difficulties.

When completed, it will be the first low-speed maglev line in China completely built by Chinese engineering. It is also expected to be the flag bearer of the maglev industry in Central China’s Hunan province.

Maglev is a transport method that uses magnetic levitation that gives it its name to move vehicles without touching the ground. With maglev, a vehicle travels along a railway using magnets to create both lift and propulsion, thereby reducing friction and allowing higher speeds.

Jilin - Hunchun HSR to commence operation October, 2015

It will be a 250km/h line stretching 360km, connecting to the existing Changchun - Jilin HSR. When opened, travel time from Changchun to Hunchun will be cut to 3 hours.

A drunken passenger on the Taiyuan - Beijing G614 broke the window glass using the emergency hammer on the HSR train. But he was quickly controlled by the steward(ess).
The train arrived in Beijing safely.

I think the best solution--especially given how China does things--is to widen the right of way on the current Beijing-Shanghai line and add an additional track per direction, one dedicated for a very limited stop--if not non-stop!--service between Beijing and Shanghai using one of the new CRH380 trainsets running at speeds as high as 340-350 km/h most of the way.

I was always wondering if the small hammer can actually break the HSR window. Finally there is a real case test

Remember that the existing line is already built for 380 km/h, not 350.

While true, I haven't heard of any Chinese-built trainset actually achieving 380 km/h in actual operational service.
