The toy is a magnetically levitating bullet train with one freight car. Â Two parallel permanent magnetic strips embedded in a straight portion of track oppose two strips embedded in the two cars of the train. Â Plexiglas walls constrain the train to move only forward and back and prevent it from flipping. Â The user will enjoy being able to see the train hover and glide smoothly on air and be able to load other play things in the freight car.
