Magnetic Levitation-Powered Trains

Advancements in technology have led to the design of trains that are powered by magnetic levitation. The magnets are supposed to replace the standard transportation tools such as wheels and gearboxes, so as to allow for transportation with a smart-growth twist. Because they have shown the capability to travel at speeds of 260 miles per hour ore more, the trains may one day be a viable mode of travel in the United States.
