It doesn't mention the word "maglev" at all.

حميد بهبهاني ادامه داد: با توجه به ظرفيت*هاي بالاي مذهبي و گردشگري و تاريخي خراسان رضوي و مشهد، علاوه بر قطار سريع*السير مشهد ـ تهران، پروژه قطار برقي را نيز پيگيري مي*كنيم كه به نتايج مثبتي نيز رسيده است.

Hamid Behbahani continued: Considering the high limits of tourism and history of Khorasan Razavi province and Mashhad, other than the high speed train project we will also investigate and look forward to the electric train project for positive outcomes.

Yes there are plans to electrify and modernise the existing rail tracks.

No news on the maglev line, but according to this article:

Quote:
Earlier this month, a state-run Iranian firm signed a $13 billion deal with China to build a 5,300-kilometre railway network in the Islamic republic.
It's from today, so very recent

For a such price, it not seems to be 100% HSR network. Much more 10% - 20%.

You have to take into account MUCH lower construction costs than in the West, plus Chinese engineering and trainsets cost rougly half as much.

That being said, this probably isn't true HSR, but a 160-200km/h railway.

This is a comparaison of HSL costs in Morocco, France and Europe.

As far as I can see, only the first two lines listed by this article might be
high-speed lines. The 6 others are for classical, mixed passenger and freight,
or freight only traffic.

Some of those lines are since a very long time on the whishlist of the
Iranian railways.

IRAQ | High Speed Rail

Your eyes are not deceiving you...

An Alstom spokesman confirmed to the BBC it had signed a "memorandum of understanding" with Iraqi officials as a first step in the project.

The line would also connect with the cities of Karbala and Najaf.

The company will hold exclusive talks with Iraqi officials for 12 months to try to strike a final agreement.

Basra is approximately 450km (280 miles) south-east of Baghdad and the proposed line would involve a 650km network, Alstom says. The line would handle speeds of up to 250km/h (155 mph).

French junior transport minister Thierry Mariani, who announced the move at the Paris International Airshow on Friday, said he would travel to Iraq in September or October to discuss the possible deal.

No financial details for the proposed project are being made available, the Alstom spokesman said.

Alstom recently signed another preliminary deal to build an elevated rail line in Baghdad.

Wow! Incredible. Iraq at least has the money, I have read the government is sitting on a huge pile of cash but political problems prevent its being spent. If they could connect some sites along the Shiite pilgrim routes, maybe even with Iran (hey, I for one hope for reconciliation between Iraq and Iran), it could be a big success. The terrain is also flat, another advantage of rail.

It'll be pretty ironic if they can get it done faster than here in the US of A.
