Editorial Reviews

One of the most crowded cities in the world – and also one of the shortest on available land area – Tokyo, Japan is a city bursting at the seams. Introducing a 300-mph, magnetically levitated train that travels between Canada and Scotland, all while submerged in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. Get a peek at exclusive designs of this truly extreme concept. Three interconnected, deep floating tunnels carry 300-mph, Mag-lev (magnetically levitated) trains between Newfoundland, Canada and Scotland. The trains make the 2,100-mile run in less than 7 hours, breaking into daylight only for brief periods near Greenland and Iceland. Floating 600 feet beneath the North Atlantic's surface, the tunnels are held fast in place by steel rods, piers and cables tethered to the ocean floor. Norwegian and Japanese prototypes demonstrate a new wrinkle on the classic, idyllic train ride. Passengers dine and sleep in climate-controlled cars, while whales and nuclear subs glide soundlessly around them.
