Wow! China unveils its first ever suspended monorail – carriages are HUNG from the tracks




China now has suspended railways. First test run of the rails was completed yesterday without a hitch. The hanging train carriages were filmed in action in the city of Chengdu as they zipped along the elevated monorail at speeds of 60kmph.


According to reports, the tests will continue until engineers have given it the all-clear but as of yet, no official opening date has been announced.


Instead of electricity, the suspension system is powered by lithium batteries.





Each coach on the upside-down monorail will be able to carry up to 120 passengers.





Chengdu, which also operates an underground Metro system, is the first city in China to officially unveil a suspension railway but the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai will also be opening one next year.
