More choices for better transportation

Munich Maglev

Some readers of TFA are also big proponents of maglev transportation. I always appreciate a note and a link, so here is the latest from Europe.

The biggest thing in high-speed maglev was announced yesterday in the world press: The reaching of a financing agreement between the major players for the first in-country commercial Transrapid maglev line in Germany. The project will be an airport connector in Munich, similar to the Shanghai shuttle system that’s been in operation since 2003.

Attached is the official press announcement and here are two links taken from many that appeared yesterday:
Germany to build maglev railway,

Germany to build first commercial Maglev train line,

The press release is here.
