Mad I just can't understand where this 'Forum' is going! How many of you have forgotten that this is 'The International MAGLEV Board Forum' What is all this talk about 'High Speed RAIL'? Yes the pictures are great and I'm not knocking the fact that they have done so well for us (in the past)!!! Are we not supposed to be looking to the future of transport on here?
All this talk about mixing Steel Rails with Maglev track 'may' just work, but it's like Oil and Watar, they just don't mix!
Let China and France and Germany for that matter build and run their high speed wheels on rails, beautiful looking trains! They won't look so beautiful when their lines buckle and their wheels go square ( not literally) and bodies are covering their twisted tracks! Germany suffered one of the worst rail accidents and here in England we have had our share. I for one have lost enough family and friends in accidents and well recall the policeman come knocking on my door and seeing the pain and anguish on my family's faces! For me, Maglev is not just for the speed it's the safety factor as well. Nothing is ever going to be completely safe but we must do the best we can with what we have! And Maglev is something we have here and now! It's a case of how much we value life and what price safety! Shocked
