Linear Motor Car Japan

Linear Motor Car is a Japanese name of maglev (magnetic levitation) trains and is also called SCMaglev (Superconducting Maglev). In Japan, Linear Motor Car has been regarded as the Dream Express exceeding Shinkansen (refer to #119) in speed.

Although it has been already well-developed by a research institute for decades and achieved the world speed record, we need more time to use it as we like. Unfortunately, it cannot make it for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
