This morning we took the Shanghai Maglev train from Pudong to the International airport. This thing goes up to 431 km/hour and takes only 7 minutes to make the trip. I took some video out the window, so hopefully it turns out.
However, this got me thinking. If we had one of these between Calgary and Edmonton, it would be about a 40 minute trip, more or less.
And if one ran between Moscow and Beijing, well, you could do the entire trip non-stop in about 18 hours.
