In Pictures: 12 cool future transportation concept...
On a long train ride, having the train stop at each station along the way slows the trip and wastes energy. That's why Asian researchers have developed the concept of the never-stopping train. The train runs on tracks but has cars on the top of it that when approaching a station detach from the train, allowing passengers to get on or disembark. Meanwhile, waiting at each train station is another car that will be picked up by the train, allowing new passengers to get on the train. The locomotive underneath never has to stop.
