Feedback form is now closed.
Throughout history engineers and scientists have sought to create new and more efficient modes of transportation. Magnetic Levitating trains, or MagLev trains, are the  trains for the future! Although it seems impossible, MaglLev trains levitate over the train tracks, never actually touching the tracks while moving, allowing them to travel over 200 times faster then normal trains. They have been incredibly successful in other countries, and it is just a matter of  time until they become part of everyday life here in the United States. Watch this video to find out more on how these spectacular trains work!
