The maglev line would run along Highway PR-52 connecting both cities. According to American Maglev Technology (AMT), who is the company in charge of the construction of this train, the cost of this project is approximately US$380 million. United States


AMT designs and develops advanced technology to solve problems in fields such as transportation and energy. Since 1994, we have invested over $50 million in research and development, which has attracted world-class strategic partners and significant corporate investment.


American Maglev Trains Still Stuck at the Station Dear Editors. Your article on Maglev does not take into account the evolution of Maglev technology. Just think, if we suspended our assessment of aviation with the Ford Tri Motor and ignored evolution to modern jet liners, one would assume that the airplane would be stuck at the airport forever.


Maglev trains operating at slower speeds are currently in use in China and South Korea. The Shanghai Maglev appears to be the only true commercial maglev train. Germany’s maglev line, Transrapid, is rather infamously known for its collision in 2006 that killed 25 people. This was the first major collision involving a maglev train, and ...


AMERICA does not have any genuine high-speed rail services. But that has not discouraged an intrepid group that wants to build support for a superconducting maglev train between Washington and New ...


Maglev train: Maglev train, a floating vehicle for land transportation that is supported by either electromagnetic attraction or repulsion. Maglev trains were conceptualized during the early 1900s by American professor and inventor Robert Goddard and French-born American engineer Emile Bachelet and have been in


The world's first commercial maglev system was a low-speed maglev shuttle that ran between the airport terminal of Birmingham International Airport and the nearby Birmingham International railway station between 1984 and 1995. Its track length was 600 m (2,000 ft), and trains levitated at an altitude of 15 mm (0.59 in), levitated by electromagnets, and propelled with linear induction motors.


The Superconducting Maglev (SCMAGLEV) is the world’s fastest and most advanced train. A train in name only – unlike any train you’ve ever seen before. Imagine Washington DC to New York City in an hour. The SCMAGLEV will revolutionize travel in the Northeast Corridor.
