This paper describes a research vehicle developed for the purpose of checking levitation characteristics, especially the dynamics of take-off and landing, when superconducting magnets are mounted right and left on the underside of the vehicle and, in opposition to them, track loops are installed on the ground; and for the purpose of studying the mutual influence between magnetic levitation and propulsion by a fixed stator type linear induction motor. A demonstration of this vehicle was staged as one of the events to celebrate Japan's railway centenary and the equipment for it was set in the compound of the Railway Technical Research Institute.
