In the future, traffic congestion and its environmental effects will be so bad, that no government will be able to ignore it. Cars as a means of transportation are increasingly becoming unviable and their negatitve effects too high.

For this reason governments are planning to build 400kmh+ Magnetic Levitation trains, that can compete with airlines to get passengers to the centres of cities quickly and with minimum environmental damage.

My design of Maglev has gull wing doors, enabling rapid embarkation and disembarkation at stations, low wind profiles and hence greater speed and effeciency.

The concept can also be used on conventional trains to speed up services- please contact me to discuss any aspect of this design.

Principally it is meant for short busy runs between large cities up to 500km apart.

This design is based on a dream I had.

Please, strap yourself in, and TAKE THE TOUR of the future!
