A Magetic Train has came off its track and injured several people.

These trains goes extremely fast. If they walk away with only injuries their lucky. But they dont know everything yet, we dont know how bad this is.

I thought these trains were very hard to come off of their tracks?

At least 20 people have been hurt in the crash of a prototype magnetic train system in western Germany, police say.

looks like it was just a prototype, and also a monorail so probably a lot easier to derail than a normal dual rail type train?

Update:::

Several people are believed killed.


news.bbc.co.uk...



They said the train, which floats on a monorail via a magnetic levitation system called Maglev, was travelling at 200km/h when it crashed.

I've just been watching the German news; they say there was an object on its track. Two people died.

The train crashed with a repair train. 29 people are involved. 19 died because of this accident.
The rescue is very difficult, because the train is in five meter height. (picture below)

If you have questions, I try to translate for you


Edit: spelling, photo added

Apparently 15 dead, 6 still missing and 10 people seriously injured.

Chancellor Merkel is also on her way to the scene now.

The only way Unirails can derail is if the track itself was somehow destroyed as the magnets hug the rail to make it nearly impossible for such a thing to happen.

That would explain it. Hitting another train on the same track is another one of those few things that could derail a monorail. I should really stop skimming lol.
