That's not really opaque. It's more like translucent.

For phone service, I just need an "open" booth like below, but when I browse the Internet, I prefer hiding in the opaque one

this one is not a Maglev, its max speed is 110km/h.

Some info and photos on this rail: it has four stations, Dongzhimen, Sanyuan Bridge, T2 and T3, total length is 28.1km, taking 16 minutes.

some pics taken on 6.28 (trial run)

The train looks awesome. How long does it take to get from the airport to the first stop in the city and how fast does this train go? It looks like it's driverless as well.

I'm OK with them (bought a couple of them for kids already). they are just ordinary mascots. but it seems all kids like them
