China Launches Sky Train

China launched its first sky train in the city of Nanjing, making it the third country after Germany and Japan to develop the technology.

Nanjing Puzhen Company Ltd, affiliated to China’s largest state-owned rolling stock manufacturer CRRC Corporation Ltd (China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation), had rolled out the elevated railway train.

The two compartments can hold more than 200 passengers, and when compared with subways and trams, sky trains have lower costs, better climbing and turning ability, and higher wind resistance.
