With a concensus emerging that puts the upper limit of rail speeds at 300 km/h for economic and commercial rather that strictly technical reasons, there has recently been a considerable re-grouping and consolidation of research effort into tracked levitated transport aimed at meeting the need for movement between cities up to 1 500 km apart at maximum speeds of around 500 km/h. Most notable has been the decline of air-cushions in favour of magnetic levitation.
