Bitte schön:

Unacceptable says Merkel

German aid to a nation whose president wants Israel to be wiped off the earth is out of the question.

(explanation of what the project is about)

The maglev (Magnetbahn) is considered a tough to market hi tech product from Germany. (more) According to China's staterun media, extension of the Shanghai track is no longer a priority after local protests. The disputed track from Munich's city centre to the airport struggles to even reach the stage of development.

480 miles? Wouldn't it be cheaper for Iran Air to buy more planes and transport people that way?

The USA have yet to target a train. The US Airforce did already shoot down an Iranian passenger plane. That's a fact that hardly ever shows up. And worthy of reminding each time. School children in the USA ought to recite each morning. We shot down a passenger plane.

USA not target train because Iran have no trains that leave the country! Aeroplanes is vital to iran cargo. But not trains are vital! Same way in sarajevo trains carry cargo but not aeroplanes!

I dun think domestic flights in Iran pass over the sea so close to the US Navy though.

U.S sanction prevents Iran from purchasing parts and planes that are made in the US.

Maglev project with Germany on track
Wed, 25 Jul 2007 12:52:04

Iran and Germany have signed a memorandum of understanding to conduct feasibility studies for launching Tehran-Mashhad high-speed train.

Iran's Deputy Transport Minister for Economic Affairs Hamid Behbahani said that in a visit by an Iranian delegation to Germany, they held talks with German Schlegel engineering firm on how to begin work for launching the magnetic levitation system (aaglev), Fars reported.

Behbahani noted that during the visit to Germany, the Iranian delegation gained valuable information about Schlegel Company and its capacities.

Explaining that the magnetic train stays one centimeter above the rail, he pointed out that the train generates electricity itself and therefore there is no need for electricity transmission via cables.

"Schlegel's maglev trains can reach the speed of 500 km within the first three kilometers, while other similar trains have to run at least 30 to 50 kilometers to reach a maximum speed of 300 km," he added

Maglev is very expensive and even the Shanghai-Pudong Maglev will never break even and thats in the world 3rd largest economy

I think its a waste of money why not make railways throughout the country and improve service and transport rather than make one single line for so much expensive cost, this is not practical, if anyone talked about a Maglev in UK they would be thrown out of the country

great comparison mate! Maglev technology has been around for years, Japan and German are only ones to make them yet they have never made a track for themselves because the of high cost and practicality issues

now if Germany and Japan two economic giants dont make a Maglev who are pioneers of this very technology doesnt that tell you something

that money can be invested and spent in much better ways like mono-rail and subways

Iran signs final Maglev contract for Tehran-Mashhad?

Found that on the international maglev board:

Quote:

Fars News Agency, 27 May 2009:
"The final contract for the construction of Tehran-Mashhad high speed railway was signed between the governor-general of Khorasan province and the German investor, in the presence of Iranian Transport Minister Hamid Behbahani.

Behbahani said Iran would also pursue project for conventional high-speed routes between the two cities, given high potentials for tourisma nd pilgrimage.

He added the cost of the project for the Iranian side is estimated at 10 to 12 billion Euros, which includes possession of the land for the route and the construction of the stations." end

NOTE:
1) The original text in Persian does NOT mention Maglev, but the project has the specification of the Maglev one which has been under discussion for the past two years.

2) The report does NOT clarify who "the German investor" is.

More update sto follow.
Again it is only an iranian news agency writing about it but the information fits into what has been discussed two years ago.

Link to original iranian news: http://www.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=8803060520

Link to IMB: http://magnetbahnforum.de/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4834

Can someone read persian?

Since the terrain is rough in the projected area, Transrapid is a good choice because it is better suited for difficult terrain than any other high speed system. According to german studies Transrapid is cheaper to construct than conventional high speed rail when it comes to mountainious terrain.

Contract of Tehran-Mashhad high speed train has been finalized

Fars News Agency: The final contract of the Tehran-Mashhad high speed train has been signed between the head of province of Razavi Khorasan and the German investors.

The final contract has been signed between the German investors and the head of Khorasan Razavi province Hamid Behbahani.

The minister of transport has said that the method of construction they will be using is "BOT". (Something I don't know about)

The cost for the project is estimated 10,000,000,000 to 12,000,000,000 Euros.

He also stated that the train journey must include the IKIA airport near Tehran for the ease of travellers. There are 9 more railway projects for Iran: 8 circuits are ready for investment.


I didn't translate the whole article, but all the important areas are covered. Hope that helps.
