The one you marked with question mark is again "home made" Transrapid with increased Chinese components, I believe.

China's first home-grown maglev train starts operation



CHANGSHA — The first Chinese middle-to-low speed magnetically levitated (maglev) rail line began operating on May 6 in Changsha, capital of central China’s Hunan province.

The maglev shuttles between Changsha’s south railway station and the airport, with one stop in between. It takes 19 minutes and 30 seconds to complete the 18.55-km journey, according to a statement from operator Hunan Maglev Transport Co.

The train can carry 363 people at a maximum speed of 100 km per hour. The price of a one-way ticket is 20 yuan (about $3). Soon, airline passengers will be able to check in and deposit their bags at a new terminal in the railway station.

Construction of the maglev trains, designed and manufactured by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd. in Hunan province, began in May 2014 with a total investment of 4.29 billion yuan.

Middle-to-low speed trains produce very little noise and occupy much less land than subways, according to CRRC representative Peng Qibiao.

The line costs between 150 million yuan and 250 million yuan per kilometer, making it highly economical compared to subways and light rail, which cost up to 800 million yuan and 300 million yuan per km respectively.

“The environmentally friendly maglev not only diversifies city transportation, but also creates a more harmonious relationship between cities and the environment,” Peng said.

Are they considering expanding maglev train and replace the existing "normal" trains in the future?

No.

The slow tracks are still very useful for freight services. The current high speed tracks may become standard speed in the future when +600 km/h maglev starts operating.

Changsha/Beijing maglevs are live tests. It may be a five-year process.


A Chinese firm will start researching and developing a magnetic levitation (maglev) train that can run 600 km per hour, which would be faster than any other maglev train currently in operation.

CRRC Corp. Ltd., China's largest rail transportation equipment maker, said it will build a maglev rail line no less than 5 km long to test the train.

The company will also develop maglev trains that travel at 200 km/h, with the goal of establishing domestic technology and standard systems for new-generation medium- and high-speed maglev transportation that can be applied globally, said Sun Bangcheng, a CRRC official.

China's 600 km/h maglev (magnetic levitation) train project, launched earlier this year, is in full swing.

Jia Limin, head of China's high-speed rail innovation program, said a high-speed maglev test line with a length of no less than 5 kilometers under the project is expected to be completed by 2021.

CRRC Corporation Limited, China's largest rail transportation equipment maker, said it would construct the test line.

In addition, Shandong province in East China plans to construct a high-speed maglev system that runs from Jinan, the province's capital city to Qingdao, which is the first operation line based on this project, Jia said.

"That is the reason why we built the 5-km test line in Qingdao," he said.

CRRC said in October that China was launching a bullet train project containing a 600 km/h high-speed maglev train and a 400 km/h international multimodal transport high-speed train.

Ministry of Science and Technology has decided to transfer some key research projects over to enterprises, such as the CRRC, a conference on major special rail transportation projects announced in October.

CRRC was the first enterprise to take on the trial projects, who received seven out of ten projects from the Ministry of Science and Technology.

The company will also develop maglev trains that travel at 200 km/h under the project.

Does anyone know why they are building Maglev between Jinan and Qingdao? They are already linked by HSR and neither of them are bigger enough economic centre's to justify it?

The only reason I can think of is if China is planning on extending this line later, perhaps further West, maybe even to Europe?

Beijing's first maglev line to start service late 2017

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136614176.htm

BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Beijing's first medium-low speed maglev line is scheduled to start operation at the end of the year, the line operator said Saturday.

Beijing Subway said it was preparing test runs.

Trains will stop at seven of the eight stations in the initial period as the Pingguoyuan interchange station is still under renovation and is expected to start service in late 2019, it said.

A total of 10 trains will be put into use in the first stage of operation.

With a maximum speed of 80 km per hour, the train is designed to carry a maximum 1,032 passengers at a time.

The line, with a total length of 10.2 km, will help improve transport for the suburban Mentougou district and optimize the industrial structure in Shijingshan district, it said.

Maglev trains are safer and cheaper compared to current metro and light rail cars. Electromagnets and specially designed tracks prevent the trains from overturning or derailing. They can also operate in severe weather with much less noise and zero emissions.

At the end of 2016, CRRC has delivered the first maglev train to Beijing. The train, named “Linglong” and developed by CRRC Tangshan Co will run on Beijing’s Line S1.
