Shanghai Maglev, also known as Shanghai Transrapid, is currently the fastest train in the world. CRH 380A running between Beijing and Shanghai, was manufactured by CSR Qingdao Sifang Locomotive & Rolling Stock.
From a standing start, the Chinese-built train reached a top speed of 302 mph in 22 minutes. The train set a record for unmodified conventional rail. The fastest train period is a Chinese mag-lev train, which can hit 311 mph. It runs on the 30.5km Shanghai Maglev Line, which is the first commercially operated high-speed magnetic levitation line, extending from Longyang Road Station of Metro Line 2 and ending at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
