Maglev Movie (Thursdays)!

We spent the holidays catching up on some of the Maglev News that has happened over the past few weeks.  We thought it would be great to post some additional videos from youtube.  Enjoy!

This is a great video showing close-up the Shanghai train flying by with Train audio.  Unfortunately we dont have a marker where the photographer was standing to get a speed of the Maglev.

A small quick video showing off the Max Bogel track fabrication plant in Germany and what looks like a Transrapid 09 sitting on the track.  No idea if this is part of the test track that was proposed to help further additional design features.

A great video (3 years ago) showing off the country side... you can also see the control operations tower at around 1:10.  At 3:30 the Maglev reaches full speed, and then look for the toll area (5:22) on the side of the freeway and you can see the storage facility and the (5:27) awesome short and steep hill that the Maglev has to go over to connect to the line.

Keep Flying On The Ground!
