    Hey i have read in one of the encyclopedias that there trains which run due to electromagnetic tracks. Tracks are electromagnetic and trains have magnetic wheels and their opposite charge make the train move due to repulsion.
    Is there any such rail system.

    I wonder how they could produce that high power to magnetize the tracks.
    Could you post a link.

    All the pictures so far I have seen of trains running in India show passengers clinging to the outside of the train, and squatting on the rooftops, I can't wait to see pictures of this at 200 MPH!!!
