It is clear from close-up photos of the sled that it is riding on conventional steel rail using steel slippers, as is done at Holloman. Hence there is nothing novel about the Nevada test. They are simply recreating what has been done elsewhere.

Because of inevitable disruptions, the system has to be able to stop and start at any point along its route.The miles of propulsion windings and wayside VVVF power required would appear to be a major cost.
