Re: DB AG uses Transrapid to improve its image

Re: Maglev never will?

I am tired of self called experts who think that they can judge the Transrapid and other maglev systems, without even knowing the basics. It is shocking that those people are getting so much attention by media. This is a problem I encounter with every day, especially on social media platforms. :/

Which system is considered for Russian maglev lines?

Does anyone know which system Russian organizations want to implement for their planned lines?
Do they want to use their own system, or are they interested in using Transrapid/EMS or even SCM like L0 Chun Shinkansen?
Thanks for answers.
