Looks good.
Can you actually feel it moving that fast? Or does it just feel like your floating?

From my experience, it shakes a bit so I guess you can feel it, but it is really smooth, so actually you can stand up and walk around while it is moving at 430km/h.

If you look outside the windows, it's crazy. You see farm land and buildings leap past very quickly.

poor bugs.

How did it feel when you were going at the top speed. I have heard that there is some turbulence at the top speed.

thanks! I hope that I can ride a maglev someday too!!

A couple of years ago, we DID have the money. Sadly, what we did not have was the will to build this thing.

Actually they should move the staff cabin to the back and make that place public so that the passenger can see all the nice view rushing towards them. Would be an awesome experience.

It is actually not ment to have a driver's cab. The train itself is pretty barebone and simple. The track contains the drive and it is normally controlled from a central site.

That's what I expected, I was surprised to see a drivers cab, I suppose it's only there for psycological reasons then, just to make the passangers feel like someone on the train is in control even though in reality the whole thing is controlled by computer.
I think it would be better without a cab at the front because that way passengers could look out the front window, that would be awesome.

For such high input investment, can't they just get a better translator and make things more professional? I am shanghainess and I feel shamed when I saw these pictures. It's easier to get shiny outside look. But to become a true international center, Shanghai still have a long way to go.

I loved the bugs too. It seems to bring some type of realism to this train. Advanced technology is still prone to getting dirty from dead bugs.

What China can afford, Germany can afford also. Germany is one of the richest countries in the world and China is still considered as a developing nation.
