Magnetic Levitation Train Project Proposal

The Magnetic Levitation Train (MAGLEV) project uses the concepts of electromagnetism and electrical machinery to levitate and propel a train along a track. The previous work of Paul Friend in 2004 includes the development of a laboratory scale model train containing permanent magnets, hung above a rotating wheel. MAGLEV will prove levitation with a new and more stable rotating wheel and it will demonstrate propulsion using an oval track. The ultimate goal for MAGLEV will then be to build a levitating train that is propelled along the oval track with reasonable stability.
