In the first of my photo/video trip reports covering China. I tried to use the MAGLEV for the first time to go to the Airport, and this report covers it.

There are photos and a video on this page! Please leave your comments regarding the trip report though on this forum.

Enjoy!

Also, Is posting the report & pics/vids on my server ok for you guys? I find that this is a lot easier and then providing a link to you.

Please let me know because i have about another 5 pic+video reports coming up!

Excellent pictures! The maglev probably makes more sense on longer routes.
The video is great too! Do you feel much of the acceleration? It seems as though the ride is not too bumpy at 430 km/h?

As you said, the Chinese will never recoup their investment. I suppose it doesn't matter to them, as this is mainly a prestige project.

Also, I read somewhere Shanghai is expected to grow past the 70 mio people mark - maybe then they will be able to fully utilisize the maglev!

Awesome !!!
I've been to Shanghai last summer, unfortunately the Transrapid hadn't been inaugurated yet...
Happily the next time I'll go to Shanghai I'll be able to take a ride at 430 km/h

Great job with your multimedia presentations!

I wasn't able to receive the turbulence announcement on your other post for some reason ("general error" with Real Audio).

I find it highly interesting to see some foreign airports; i was really surprised at how modern China has become.

Big thank you for all your reports. Enjoyed each and every one of them. I was supposed to go to Shanghai a few weeks ago but had to postpone it until June or July. Look forward to riding the Maglev!
