Construction on the test line for China's first new energy, unmanned, panda-shaped "Sky Train" started in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan province, on Saturday.

The "Sky Train" test line, about 11.3 kilometers long, will run between the Dayi Station of the Chengdu-Pujiang Fast Railway and Anren town in Dayi county with four stops.

The train, which will be battery-powered, can zip along the monorail track at speeds of up to 80 km/h.

With an investment of 2.18 billion yuan, the "Sky Train" line is expected to be built in 17 months. It will majorly serve as a tourist sightseeing route.
