sure, only at reduced speed & since you need more material a bit more expensive.

This video shows a switch in the test track.




In regular operation it will be very impractical to switch to a single track operation. It will significantly reduce the frequency of trains on the line, probably making it more practical to just suspend services in both directions to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

If you are selected don't forget to make a great photo-report for SSC with all exclusive data!

Does anyone know the purpose of those curved sheds over the track? Is it due to concerns over sound pollution?

Maybe it's to reduce tunnel boom.

Yup, it acts like a silencer of a gun.

OK, the chance of me winning a place in the Maglev test ride this November is 1 in 84. To be precise, I have teamed up with my friend for this "lottery", but then it is still 1 in 42 chance

Japan is the most advanced country in Maglev Technology.

All thanks to magnets.
regarding tunnel boom effect maybe vacuum tubes can help. since the trains will travel in vacuum the noise pollution will be controlled.
Japan has surely shown that world has alot to learn.
Shinkansen and SC maglev will be remembered by every country before implementing such a project.
can anybody tell me how do they cool the heating engines and coaches.

Cool vid.
Is there any specific need for the airport-like entrance?
If the new Japan maglev is mostly in tunnel could it not be converted in future to vacuum tube? Even reducing the air pressure by 10 or 20% would mean less power used to propel the train

It's to do with EM radiation interfering with credit cards/pacemakers and the like.

This past Sunday, there was a program on Japanese TV (Yume no tobira plus) which visited the Yamanashi Test Track. Indeed the tunnel hoods act as a silencer, the perforations on the upper surfaces of the hood dissipate the shock wave as the vehicle exits the tunnel entrance. These devices are very much necessary, one scene where the maglev train passes above ground the sound was very loud, akin to a jetliner passing by. I can see why this line is mainly underground, the aural environmental damage would likely be too much in populated areas.

According to the latest info, the chance of me winning a seat is 1 in 125

There are currently 118000 applicants for 2400 places.

Doesn't all these measures pretty much validate peoples' fears about maglev? I can't imagine it will be well received when Japan tries to export the idea.
