Magnetic trains are the new and only alternative for airplanes, buses, cars, boats, and normal trains. Only a few countries have a magnetic trains, magnetic trains are also known as Maglev trains. Maglev trains were invented because people thought that normal trains were to slow if you were going hundreds of miles it could take hours but with this train it will only take 30-60 minuets. How Magnetic trains work, Maglev trains work by having a magnet on the bottom of the train and a magnet on the track so the train and the track repel from each other this is called magnetic levitation.

This relates to engineering because electrical, mechanical and civil engineers were needed to build it.
