I know I've talked about this before, but the scale of the challenge of this train station astounds me. The train travels 268 mph, floating above the tracks like MAGIC. It takes the 18.6-mile journey from the Longyang Road Station in Pudong to the Pudong International Airport in about seven minutes. But at $1.2 *billion* to build this glorified airport shuttle, it's languished as a money-losing proof of concept of a future that will likely go unfinanced.
