Toronto Zoo has given green light to Magnovate Maglev rail

Toronto has an old monorail track sitting dormant at their zoo. Magnovate will be retrofitting their Maglev trains to use the track. Still several years out, but I'm pretty stoked to see it.

  1. Not to quibble, but I notice you have the Magnovate vehicle running in a tube. Artistic license or is Magnovate going the way of Hyperloop and ET3?

  2. Sorry for late reply Laurence. The Magnovate vehicles may go with a semi-vacuum tube at some point, but not as the Hyperloop has done. I'd argue the Hyperloop is over complicated and perhaps a system like Magnovate is an easier step forward.
