China's Own Maglev.

China has successfully tested a home-grown Maglev train in Chengdu:

The test train can hold 60 people and travel up to 100 miles per hour, Xinhua reported, citing Zhang Kunlun, deputy director of the School of Electrical Engineering at the Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu.

The cost of the Chinese maglev train is low, and it is suitable for urban traffic, Zhang said.

"The successful test of the train shows that China has mastered the technology of low-to-medium speed maglev trains," he was quoted as saying.
