China launched world's first suspension railway


The world's first maglev suspension railway is put into operation in China. An unusual building is located in the south of the country in Jiangxi province. The length of the railway line is 800 meters, and the height of the span above the ground is 10 meters. The mechanism is powered by permanent magnets and can lift a train with 88 passengers.

As note experts from the Jiangxi University of Science and Technology, in the absence of friction, only a small amount of electricity is needed to move the train, and the cost of building such a road is a tenth of the cost of building a subway line, writes mir24.
