JR Tokai invites LaHood to ride Japans Maglev


Japan Railroad has invited U.S. transportation secretary LaHood to a test ride on their Maglev train to help increase sales of the technology.  Maybe this will "movement" will inspire LaHood to release the MAGLEV funds that have been dedicated and formed are still sitting waiting to be used.

Heres a photo of Japans maglev...which uses super conducting magnets on side walls to help with movement, instead of having the magnets underneath the track like the Germany Transrapid technology keeping trains wrapped around the track.

We've included a web page that has a great explanation of how the Japan Maglev technology works along with some awesome photos of Mt. Fuji in the background.

Keep Flying On the Ground!
