Re: Japanese government urged to complete Maglev construction as soon as possible

It may be an ego trip for Japan but unless the SC maglev can have a 700 km/h overnight container train to reduce daytime fares below planes it will never be exported to big democratic countries.

It may work in a dictatorship but there would be too many NIMBYS in a democratic country, it has to be underground.

Unless it is showcased as economically viable with an overnight container train to reduce daytime fares lower than planes it would never be used in a big democracy.

Re: [CN] Copying and improving the Transrapid Shanghai

Not only is the German maglev not as fast as the S C maglev but it costs too much to build and maintain with one centimetre clearance.

It needs to be in a big pressure reduced tunnel(11 psi) to allow heavy overnight container trains to make it economical between two big cities.

Re: [JP] JR Tokai Seeks Opinions from Prefectural Citizens

China has driven a tunnel beneath the sea with a greater inflow than Japan so it may be an idea to ask them how they did it.

Re: Northeast Maglev Company News

The only way to have an economical international SC maglev in America is to put it in a single straight 11 psi tunnel designed by China, Japan and America to reduce the daytime fares below planes.

Re: Zeleros Hyperloop

At 120 km/h it is too slow to run overnight 1,000 km so it cannot subsidise daytime fares and remove planes.

Be better if China, Japan and America developed the Sydney/Melbourne overnight container maglev to international standard.

Re: Pods - hanging versus bottom levitation - pros and cons

For a start I think Hyperloop would never work but to make a train profitable it must have an overnight container train and this is much easier in tunnels as there is no weight limit.

As overnight non stop 700 km/h overnight Japanese maglev trains in single 11 psi, 14 meter diameter tunnel earn enough to make daytime fares cheaper than planes it does not really matter if there are a couple of stops in a big city as the freight which you cannot use on HSR makes it economical.
