China has launched the world’s first magnetic cushion train, reports July 20 state news agency Xinhua.
It is specified that the speed of the train can reach 600 km/h and currently it is the fastest ground transport in the world.
The new transportation system was presented in Qingdao city, east China’s Shandong province.
