Even Chinese car companies are deciding to build trains.

China's first suspension railway completes test run

Source: Xinhua | Sept 30, 2016



China's first suspension railway line finished its test run in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, on Friday.

The lithium-battery powered train, which has a speed of 60 km per hour, successfully ran along the 300-meter test section of the railway line, after being suspended from the line on Friday.

The load capacity will be 120 passengers per train coach, said Zhai Wanming, chief designer of the project, from Southwest Jiaotong University.

Based on the current test line, Zhai estimates the cost of the suspension railway is one-fifth to one-eighth of the cost of underground rail per kilometer. He also said that lithium batteries were environmentally friendly.

The test section of the railway line will be expanded to 1.2 kilometers, for further tests on turning, climbing, and operations at train and charging stations, Zhai said.

"The test runs will continue for tens of thousands of kilometers to check performance capabilities before official operation," he said.

I knew they would build that. After that strange giant bus-tram hybrid, anything is possible.

I'm considering getting a Wikipedia account for update and expand the articles about Chinese metros and translating them into Spanish (now that all Wikipedias share accounts). I've already corrected 'Yixueyaun' to Yixueyuan on the article about line 2 of Shenyang metro.

It seems that construction began on high-elevation tram, connecting Qinghai and Tibet provinces, with planned completion by the end of 2017:

More than one century ago, my grand-grand father was locomotive engineer in Northern Africa.
He said that locomotives had to stop, because camels bones were very hard.
There was no problem with cows, donkeys or sheeps bones.

Why would hanging trains be more cost effective than trains on top of a track? Looks like it might fall off if something goes wrong.

For a given capacity, very much so. The panda one has a max passenger capacity of 720. That's equivalent to 5 double decker buses. And it can be easily made automated.

I think it's safer than commuting by car (especially in China) and not more dangerous than taking an elevator.

Now that 2016 is over I compile every metro opening in China for that year. Note that I include both Gregorian and Chinese years, so if any opening takes place up to January 28 (Chinese new year) it will be also included here as well as in the 2017 compilation. As a bonus I give out a name for the mostly-joke 13th month.

October 28: Shenzhen line 9, Hongshuwan Nan to Wenjin (New line)
November 8: Xi'an line 3, Yuhuazhai to Baoshuiqu (New line)

December 31: Beijing line 16, Bei'anhe to Xiyuan (New line)
December 31: Tianjin line 6, Changhong Gongyuan to Nansunzhuang

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm more interested in the mainland so I don't check Hong Kong (or Taiwan, for that matter) that often. I only caught the South Island line because it opened with the year end wave.

Although cost effectiveness is not as much of the difference, the primary reason is the effect of the structure on the ground below. Suspend train rail structures cast a far narrower shadow on the ground than any other elevated rail system except a monorail.
