Japan’s new super-fast L0 train floats above the ground and can go 500 km/hThis week, the first test runs for Japan’s new 500 kilometre-per-hour magnetic floating supertrain was a success.The new generation of “L0 Trains” — set to be deployed in 2027 on the Tokyo-Nagoya line —  are not the first “Mag Lev” (Magnetic Levitation) trains, but they are the first to regularly break 500 km/h.The superfast trains use magnetic levitation instead of wheels to reduce friction and to allow the train to run better in all weather. The magnetic trains can also speed up and slow down more quickly than a traditional wheeled train. (JIJI PRESS/AFP/Getty Images)
