The Korean Maglev


I know I shouldn’t write this as a German, since politics and industry are so incompetent when it comes to building a Transrapid line. And also society, while “happy” to pay billions for a new autobahn is handing in lots of complaints when it comes to a new technology that has some advantages over the old.


It doesn’t look like Korean magnetic levitation train is in a better condition, though: There is a track in Daejeon but the train seemed to gather dust for a long time. It probably was active during the Expo.
