Shanghai’s Magnetic Levitation (MagLev) train is the fastest commercial train in the world!  It connects Pudong airport to downtown.  At full speed, the journey takes 7 minutes and 20 seconds to complete the distance of 30 km.  The train reached 350 km/h (220 mph) in 2 minutes, with the maximum operation speed of 431 km/h (268 mph).  It was awesome!
