1984: Urban Maglev Berlin

Post by Eurorapid »

The Berlin maglev train was operated on a trial basis from 1984 and regularly with passengers from 1989 to 1991. After reunification, the railroad unfortunately had to make way for the reconstruction of the U2 subway line.

Was it really a maglev train? As far as I know, it used a long stator linear motor, but it hat guidance and carrying wheels / rolls, which doesn’t sound like a real magnetic levitating train…
