TOWER AND SUSPENDED TRACK FOR MAGNETRAIN An overview of the towers and overhead track structure. There would be a minimum of 18 feet between the ground and the underside of the cars.
Figure 2 CABIN AND LEVITATION COMPARTMENT FOR MAGNETRAIN
The levitation compartment is above, and the passenger/cargo compartment below, in this schematic of the Magnetrain.
CROSS SECTION OF THE PERMANENT MAGNET LEVITATION SYSTEM This cross section is taken from the place marked 2 in Figure 2. The numbered sections are described in the text.
Figure 4 EARTHQUAKE-RESISTANT CONICAL MOUNTING OF RAIL CROSS SUPPORT The cross support that holds up the track is not rigidly fixed to the tower structure, but is attached to the top of the structure by interlocking cones, which can realign segments if there is an earthquake.
