The question was raised what maximum speed, considered merely from the technical angle, is attainable on the classical wheel/rail system, using adhesion for the transmission of the propulsive force. For the various elements values of the estimated maximum speeds are given, adapted from the available documents on the subject. Many theses and reports have already been published on this subject. Therefore, this report on preliminary studies does not claim to be exhaustive.
