Magnetic Levitation Trains

This technology pertains to trains that magnetically levitate above a grid of electromagnets on a rail, that generate pulses of forward or reverse moving magnetic waves to push the train forward or backwards. The trains don’t have wheels, and because they are levitating, they have virtually no friction associated with the movement of the train. This cuts down on power loss from heat that would normally emanate from the train’s wheels, and it makes the train require less maintenance than trains that work on propulsion on a track. The technology can also be combined with stealthy shapes that reduce the wind resistance, so the train acts like a long aircraft. These trains can also be combined with a vacuum tube, that adds to the power and speed of the train, as there is less resistance from wind. Protection Status Site Protected by SiteLock
