“The future of train travel?” This 2.0 non-stop bullet train will change your perspective to next-gen transportation

Boarding a train is faster than regular ground transportation. However, the challenge here is the waiting time before transferring to another location.

The high-speed train designed by Priestmangoode could be a game-changer when it comes to travel. It is not a typical bullet train or passenger train since it can transfer you to another station without stopping.

The high-speed train. 20 from Moving Platforms could be the next big thing in rail transportation.

Modern trains can be impressive because of their speed. Take for example the Japanese bullet train, capable of reaching 320 km/h.

However, if you want to quickly move to another local train in your city, you will have to wait for some time before it stops. The design of Moving Platforms does not work like this since it aims to transfer passengers through a special connection.

ZDNet reported that you could “literally” jump from one bullet train to another thanks to a unique docking mechanism. When it’s time for the transfer, you can take a new train without having to stop at some point.

In fact, this 2.0 bullet train can easily take you from Boston to San Francisco. The only separation between the two trains is an automatic door that will allow you to enter easily.

High-speed rail networks can be expensive

This high-speed train could be the future of train travel. It can transport you from place to place without having to stop.

Priestmangoode’s designers know that making this high-speed train won’t be as easy as it looks, as it will require a lot of resources.

In addition to being expensive, these next-generation train networks could damage the environment over time. Because they operate continuously, more energy is burned as a result during their operation.

“I can’t believe that across the world we’re spending billions on high-speed rail, running it on a network that was invented in the 19th century,” said Paul Priestman of Priestmangoode.

In line with his plans to expand the use of high-speed rail in the region, Priestmangoode believes that by doing this people will no longer have to worry about huge rail hubs.

The designers said the train should be consistent in speed to save energy. It would also help reduce the number of “short-haul flights” in an area.

Priestman added that it would also pave the way for a “seamless” passenger experience for customers trying to reach a destination. The company believes that ‘connectivity’ is key to making it a ‘future of air travel’.

Meanwhile, Local reported that train travel in Germany has recently deteriorated. Instead of maintaining its status as a leader in efficiency and innovation, the country’s reputation for technology is deteriorating.
