Virgin launching train that can travel from London to Scotland in 50 mins
Imagine getting to Scotland from London in less than one hour… It would be great wouldn’t it?
Well you’ll soon be able to as Virgin Group have announced they’re investing a lot of money into Hyperloop One – the world’s most revolutionary train service.
The Hyperloop will work by loading passengers and cargo into a pod and accelerating gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube.
The pod quickly lifts above the track using magnetic levitation and glides at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag. On their website, Virgin said: ‘Ever since our creation, Virgin has been known for disruption and investing in innovative companies.
‘From our airlines to our trains to our spaceline, we have long been passionate about innovation in transport too, especially the development of technology that could transform people’s lives. ‘This is just the latest example.’
An important point about Virgin Hyperloop One is that it will be all-electric and will be built as a sustainable form of transport. Read More
