Levitating Mass Transit

Move over Metro. Introducing the EOL maglev train concept. Magnetic levitation replaces mechanical components to launch this aerodynamic choo-choo to speeds exceeding 480 kilometers per hour; all while you relax or work from the comfort of your personal business class cabin in absolute silence. Though it’s optimized for long distance travel; I’d sacrifice my long-time chauffeur fantasy for making the daily commute on the EOL in a heartbeat.The solar paneled roof and magnetic technology make the train more cost-effective and energy efficient than any existing railroad system. Not to mention, it’s functional and customizable yet polished and minimal interior is just plain hot.

    Interesting, I'm a fan of the idea and the exterior, but the interior looks a little crammed to me. I'm just really hoping for a mag-lev system to be coming to the States to be honest…

    If only CIncinnati would get on board….

    Instead of a solar panel train roof…. Place the panels on the track – except for tunnels and when the train is over it, the track is likely has unobstructed access to sunlight. Given the small footprint and power demands for such speeds, it's not feasible to provide the motive forces to keep the train lifted and in moving with such a system….

    I second the sentiments of a crammed interior… At the very least, it does not offer opportunities to be social…

    There's already a magnetic levitation train in Japan.

    I really like its aggressive look. Interior looks very interesting as well. I understand the idea to fit as many people as possible in it and yet to provide them with comfort. (Very practical thinking) It looks like the doors are made from three screens which provides easier access to the seat, I always hate that with buses.
    I assume the windows of the cabin can be pulled down as well, so the social part is not an issue here. Well done!

    Great design, perfect name and logo! What I like most is that it really looks like it is surreal fast! Great.

    Darn costs, Id say bring this to the US for our HS RR lines, but funding drying up since the ridership numbers dont add up.
    Otherwise YES.
