Solar topped concept MAGLEV train


This new idea came out a day or two ago and has been posted to a lot of sites (and now this one).  While the photos have the Bombardier logo on them one of them has the insert of "Bombardier design contest" and we could not find any links within the Bombardier site.

It appears that this design will be used for inner-city and airport travel due to the solar panel placement mounted to its roof to assist with lighting.  Passengers sit sideways along the length of the train for a possible smaller track footprint.

We will only post a link to where the photos are as we can not confirm that this is actually from "Bombardier" due to the lack of a direct link to its website, press release and a search of "maglev" on Bombardier's site brings up an error message.

Keep Flying On The Ground!
