I support that first Transrapid track in Germany.

There are several reasons:
First of all, the Germans have to pay for it, and not we Austrians.
But far more importantly, its ******* hilarious if not pathetic that you put a huge amount of effort and even more money into developing a technological gem like the Transrapid, which really comes up to the expectations, but then just dump all that globally leading top technology in the trash bin waiting that Japan who acts unlike Germany clever, catches up, and sees happily how it can take over the lead.

The discussion in Munich absolutely lacks any look over the own fence. Its so extremely narrow minded you can't bear it.

good to bring back this thread.

Today, newspapers wrote, that the new geneartion TR09 will start test runs on the test track in Emsland in April.

Its really about time...the accident will be 1,5 years ago by then....

Great project, nice movie!!! Also love the soundtrack, which is kind of monumental. But it's a pity that the movie is not downloadable. Anyway I can hardly wait for the Transrapid to shuttle between MUC and Munich City.

Rrrrrrrrrrrh!!Look into my eyes, Baby!

Very nice, indeed!

It is time to build a Transrapid track in Germany otherwise the world could start thinking that this is a Chinese invention because of the only existing track in Shanghai...

Or even keep the one they had in Birmingham!

Good to see Germany and Japan pushing forward with this technology, especially in a more practical way than Shanghai implemented it.

Anyone who thinks this is a Chinese invention has to be incredibly stupid.

Everyone knows the sexiest things on Earth (including trains) come from Germany

Sorry, Germany does have sexy ladies and sexy music, but sexy trains, nonono, Japan has the monopoly on that one.

Fastech360 plus JRWest500 plus MLX-1 = Sexiest train fleet, das punkt!
