Re: Flying Trains Could Be Coming Your Way

Presumably the train and the plane have different propulsion methods (it would be pretty unpleasant to be on the platform as a train was departing, otherwise).

So forgetting about everything else, there's the huge cost penalty of lifting the train's propulsion equipment up into the air.

I suppose possibly someone could develop a passenger canister to gets smoothly slid from the train to the plane, so that passengers don't have to get out of their seats. But I can't imagine the train's motors getting flown.
