Line S1 (Chinese: S1线; pinyin: S Yī Xiàn) or Mentougou Line (Chinese: 门头沟线; pinyin: Méntóugōu Xiàn) formerly known as Datai Line (Chinese: 大台线; pinyin: Dàtái Xiàn), or Beijing Maglev Trains (Chinese: 北京低速磁悬浮; pinyin: Běijīng Dīsù Cíxuánfú) is an approved magnetic levitation train, or maglev line rapid transit system that has to be built and operated by the Beijing Suburban Railway. Line S1 of BCR will start from the Dinghuiqiao North Number Five Road on the West Fourth Ring Road, and will go west towards Mentougou.[1]

Trains will use the low and middle speed magnetic levitation technology which can give a top speed of 105 kilometers per hour.[2][3]

A report in February 2013 said all preparatory work was complete and construction would commence "once the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) grants its approval."[4]

Further reports in July 2014 say the line will commence operation in 2015.[5]
