The new model of high speed train transportation, designed by Paul Priestman of Priestmangoode, would keep the main passenger train traveling non-stop, without every stopping to let passengers off. In order to get on or off the train, passengers board through docking trams which catch up with the primary train, and then once everyone has boarded or departed, slow back down and take passengers to their destination.

If cities throughout the nation were to adopt a high speed rail system such as this one, it would undoubtedly take cars off the road, decreasing pollution, as well as reducing the need for as much air travel. This new model of transportation would make it even easier to travel across the country, and truly bring our cities into the 21st century.
But are cities – or even countries – prepared to adopt a revolutionary system like this one? Let us know what you think.
