Build your own working model of the train of the future - the maglev train!
Maglev, which means 'magnetic levitation', involves using magnets to lift and propel the train around a track. The train has no wheels and minimal friction, and can travel at an incredible speed!
With this kit you can construct your own track to run the maglev train provided. The kit also contains information about how the maglev system works.
What You Get
Floating Train. Includes maglev train and track with instructions for how to operate and how it works.
How Does it Work?
Maglev trains travel on a track, or guideway, using a system of magnets to create lift and to propel the train along the track. In the absence of contact between the track and the train's wheels, friction is greatly reduced. This allows fast acceleration and increases the potential top speeds. The ride in a maglev train is also much smoother than in a conventional train. The way maglev is achieved varies, and each system has pros and cons.
