Guideways for a High-speed Magnetic Levitation Train System

Since 1969 the TRANSRAPID, a high-speed magnetic levitation train system, has been developed in the Federal Republic of Germany and has been tested since 1984 on a 31.2km long test track. On the test track, a new world record of 435 km/h for passenger-transport magnetic levitation (maglev) vehicles has been reached. It is intended to erect the first operational line of this maglev train system between the airports of Cologne and Dusseldorf. Professor Dr.-Ing. Faulkner, Dr.-Ing. S. Droese and Dr.-Ing. V. Henke
