  1. "The magnetized coil running along the track, called a guide way, repels the large magnets on the train's undercarriage, allowing the train to levitate between 0.39 and 3.93 inches (1 to 10 centimeters) above the guide way. Once the train is levitated, power is supplied to the coils within the guide way walls to create a unique system of magnetic fields that pull and push the train along the guide way. The electric current supplied to the coils in the guide way walls is constantly alternating to change the polarity of the magnetized coils. This change in polarity causes the magnetic field in front of the train to pull the vehicle forward, while the magnetic field behind the train adds more forward thrust."
    Maybe you could make something out of this. If this didn't help you I'll try to find something else.
    Just don't copy this word-for-word and plagiarize.

  8. I know this is late, but here is an idea, please don't copy or plagiarize -
    The magnets repelling against the train are turned on and off, causing the train move forward and float above the tracks.
    Instead of the magnets attracting to one another pulling the train forward causing friction of the wheels on the tracks, these powered magnets are turned on to push against the metal in the train, a strong force, making it float above the tracks. It also uses this type of push to propel the train forward, making it move from one place to another.

    Hope this helps!!
