The Wikipedia page for the Shanghai Maglev train depicts the train cabin:

The power bar and portable fan (on the left) look slapdash, and makes me doubt this train's safety.

    I'm curious about the filing cabinet and office chair (foreground, left). I think this might be a simulator. – user79658 Aug 9 '18 at 19:17

    It's been in service for over twelve years without a major incident and you doubt it's safety? – user 56513 Aug 9 '18 at 20:34

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because not primarily about travel. – user 56513 Aug 9 '18 at 20:35

    @CannonFodder that was my first impression too, but there are videos that show similar situation on actual trains. The model of the fan varies :-) – jcaron Aug 9 '18 at 22:29

    @user71659 I don't have to read the British requirements to know what everyone can see and observe when travelling by train in Europe. Train passenger are generally not (or never) using seat belts and can move freely around. Luggage, especially larger or heavier objects placed on overhead racks are obvious dangers in case of a crash or derailment, but also smaller items located on your seat table, e.g. laptops, can be dangerous enough. Since the risks are so low, these dangers are put up with for practical reasons. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Aug 10 '18 at 8:12
