China News Service, Jiangxi Xingguo, August 9 (Reporter Jiang Tao) China's first permanent magnet maglev rail transit system engineering test line - "Red Rail" was successfully completed on the 9th in Xingguo County, Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province, "the Kingdom of Rare Earths" .
That morning, a red and white maglev train with "Xingguo" printed on both sides of the front of the train slowly departed from the starting station. Representatives from government, enterprise, academia and research including Gan Yong, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, participated in the first ride. Test ride experience.

Gan Yong pointed out that the "red track" is the third magnetic levitation technology system developed after the magnetic levitation technology of the constant conducting electromagnetic levitation and the superconducting levitation. It is an integrated innovation of the permanent magnet levitation technology and the suspended monorail technology. The special performance realizes the heavy-duty permanent magnet suspension with zero power consumption, and has the remarkable characteristics of green, intelligent, safe and economical.

It is understood that the research and development of the "Red Track" system took nine years, led by Jiangxi University of Science and Technology, and completed jointly with Xingguo County People's Government, China Railway Sixth Institute, China Railway Industry, National Rare Earth Functional Materials Innovation Center and other units.
"Permanent magnetic levitation air rail has the characteristics of non-contact and suspension operation, strong climbing ability, small turning radius, low noise, and more energy saving and environmental protection." Yang Bin, chief expert of "red rail" technology and secretary of the Party Committee of Jiangxi University of Science and Technology, said The completion of the "Red Rail" test line marks the birth of a safe, convenient and efficient new-standard rail transit system with medium and low speeds and medium and low volumes.
The test line built this time starts from Yongfeng Station (Xingguo West Station of the high-speed railway) in the south, and the main line of the line is about 800 meters long, all of which are steel structure elevated lines.
The maglev train is composed of 2 cars, with a passenger capacity of 32 seats and a capacity of 88 people. The maximum design running speed is 80km/h.
At the "Red Track" industry investment promotion conference that day, 10 projects were signed on the spot, with a total investment of 11.43 billion yuan.

"As an explorer of the combination of permanent magnet suspension technology and rail transit, 'Red Rail' has completely independent intellectual property rights, and is expected to become a high-quality, personalized and intelligent transportation system with low life cycle cost and excellent cost performance. Talking about the application and promotion of "Red Track", Yang Bin believes that "Red Track" covers many strategic emerging industries such as new materials, rail transit, artificial intelligence, etc., and has broad prospects for future development.
