You wont be able to have a train go 4000 mph even with that technology... You will have far too much wind drag on the train, it would have to be underground in an air tight tunnel.
Even if you got it up to 4000mph the average person would not be able to withstand the g forces created by going that fast.
"Quantum levitation" is a sort of silly thing to call it. It's a demonstration of the Meissner effect whereby a superconductor expells the magnetic field produced by the magnet on the table. While it is a result of quantum mechanical phenomena, the same could be said about magnetism in general.
It is basically like quantum levitation.
