Business ideas like Uber and the imminent introduction of autonomous vehicles make the notion of the private carriage an enticing one for future trains. Designer Phillip Seagram has come up with an idea for a new type of public transit that appeals to lovers of everyday luxury and ultimate convenience.
First of all, this concept is for the 2065 MagLev Split Unit Train, which will increase the efficiency and eco-friendly factors of urban and suburban transportation. Polarized magnets will take the place of tracks for fast, friction-free and fuel-free movement. But what about the personalization aspect?
The length of this train would be segmented by private carriages that easily detach and reconnect throughout the cars' journeys, enabling families and friends to travel in isolation. What's more, it's suggested that these separate units could make stops independently and rejoin other modules for more streamlined movement.
