The Transrapid 08 is by far the most important vehicle in the history of Transrapid. A slightly modified version of the TR08 is in operation on the SMT Shanghai Transrapid route, and was originally intended to serve the Hamburg-Berlin route.

Currently, the entire train is stored in Lathen. It is in very bad condition and needs to be cleaned very well.
