The basic idea of the skyscraper train hub is that hyper-trains,
which would cover 300 miles in 30 minutes (about twice as fast than
today’s bullet trains), would shoot down the sides of a skyscraper into underground tunnels, eventually delivering passengers to their destinations.
catch a train, you would take an elevator to a specified floor. Each
elevator only goes to specific floors, eliminating the need for multiple
stops, making the process more efficient than what’s now in place for
modern train stations (which are generally chaotic). Once you arrive at
your floor, you board your train.
Although the entire thing looks
like a crazy ride at Six Flags, it’s not: the trains pivot in a way that
always keep passengers upright. The train’s tracks are not rails, but
work via a magnetic configuration. The skyscraper train hub would
replace existing stations and could work in any city, with trains
constantly arriving and departing.
