THE STATUS OF MAGLEV SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

Twentyfive years have passed since the beginning of the development of the Maglev system, and the running test of the test vehicle has been continued at Miyazaki Test Track for more than 15 years. The new test vehicle, which was built last year, attained a speed of 431 km/h on 24th of February 1994. Meanwhile, a new test line will prove the practicability of the Maglev system as tomorrow's important high speed transportation. The paper described the present status of Maglev development.
