  1. CHENGDU, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) — A prototype locomotive using high-temperature superconducting (HTS) maglev technology was rolled out on Wednesday in southwest China’s city of Chengdu.

    The domestically developed maglev train boasts a designed speed of 620 kph, according to Southwest Jiaotong University, one of the train’s designers.

    A 165-meter line to test the new train was launched on the same day.

    At the launch ceremony, the 21-meter-long silver-and-black locomotive was seen floating slowly along the track. Experts hailed the key development of HTS technology emerging from lab tests in China.
