    HKFoot, in all due respect (and I like you for your posts too as you have plenty of interesting points). That's how things work in China. There are so many frustrating things about China as you know. Until you get over it and play the game yourself you won't get anywhere here.

    My online credibility? I've been called an idiot or an ass by most people here though I have to admit not as frequently as you have nor did I have the dubious honor of being banned.

    I try to base most of my opinions on verifiable facts as opposed to fictional jobs or people I've supposedly met...

    Firstly, there is no Maglev train between BJ and TJ, it is a high speed CRH train similar to what is used on the Shanghai and other routes.

    Also, there are sometimes only 'seatless' tickets available for this service.

    Once again, the guy that claims to make loads of money from his technical expertise doesn't even know the difference between a high speed train on conventional rail lines like the ones on the BJ-TJ line and a maglev like the one in Shanghai. What a joker...

    I assumed it was a maglev, when I was in Beijing and I needed to get to the Tianjin Customs office, I always drove. The railway for this train is right next to the expressway so I did see the trains pass by. It was going faster than 180km/h but unfortunately, I didnt get the opportunity to ride the train to Tianjin.

    There are only three maglev commercial lines in the world, Shanghai, Korea and Japan. All quite short lines.

    I don't think there is a commercial maglev in Japan yet - or is there?
