What to Buy a Maglev Train?

Transrapid Maglev For Sale
It is good to be skeptical of Maglev technology as a viable transportation system. Despite the billions spent on maglev over the years only one high speed maglev train is in operation. Even this train, the Chinese Shanghai Maglev, had future expansion plans cancelled. The original partner on the project Siemens decided not to be involved in Maglev anymore also.

So it really comes as no surprise that the Transrapid Maglev in Germany are up for sale. We have followed this train through its tragedies (2006 - 23 dies in accident) and failed projects in China.
