The Glasgow forumers are getting more and more excited about a Glasgow-Edinburgh maglev, irrespective of the plans further south. This is mostly based on increasingly positive noises from the Scottish Executive. Given the cost of the proposed line to Birmingham, I really don't understand why that isn't emerging as the preferred option here.

The SNP aren't cutting back on transport - they just favour spending the money (e.g. for the Edinburgh Airport rail link) elsewhere (e.g. buses).

It's not just Ultraspeed who are making positive noises - for example, here is a newspaper report about Edinburgh city council;

Ultraspeed have also collected a number of the stories that have emerged in the Scottish press recently;

At least two of the major political parties (Labour and the Conservatives) seem to be starting to favour maglev, and both Glasgow and Edinburgh councils and the SPT are pretty much in favour.
