How It Works

Every magnet has a North Pole and a South Pole. The 'opposite' poles of two magnets (North and South) will attract each other, but 'like' poles (North and North or South and South) repel each other. Repulsion between magnets on the track and the underside of the train is what makes the train 'levitate' and hover over the track. Because the train is not touching the track, there is no friction to slow the train down, so it can achieve very high speeds.

Did you know?

The word 'Maglev' is an abbreviation of 'Magnetic levitation'. Maglev trains operate in several countries, including  France, Germany, Japan and China. The record for the fastest speed achieved by a Maglev train is currently 603kmph!
