Moving Platforms For High Speed Rail?
November 5, 2012 in Technology
“Moving Platforms is a completely interconnected rail system where local trams connect to a network of non-stop high speed trains enabling passengers to travel from their local stop to a local address at their destination (even another country) without getting off a train. Moving Platforms involves a network of high speed trains that run non-stop between two ends of a continent, Los Angeles to New York for instance. The high speed trains run on a line that passes outside towns and cities with a network of local feeder trams that carry passengers from local stops out to meet them. As they near each other, the high speed train slows down slightly and the tram speeds up alongside it, at which point the trains physically connect via a docking system allowing passengers to transfer directly across from the tram to the high speed train and vice versa.”
