If enclosed in a vacuum the speeds would be mind blowing.

Nice concept. It looks impressive, but do you have any idea how it would work?

Thanks. It's very old work (it seems year 2003 ) and I lost 3d models and source files :)

"Max kept his eyes to the northwest. He favored this spot because from it he could see the steel stilts and guide rings of the Chicago, Springfield, & Earthport Ring Road emerge from a slash in the ridge to his right. There was a guide ring at the mouth of the cut, a great steel hoop twenty feet high. A pair of stilt-like tripods supported another ring a hundred feet out from the cut. A third and last ring, its stilts more than a hundred feet high to keep it level with the others, lay west of him where the ground dropped still more sharply into the valley below. Half way up it he could see the power-link antenna pointing across the gap."

Robert Heinlein, Starman Jones (1953)

I'd imagine the rings would be large permanent magnets that would "float" the train between them reducing drag and even changing polarity as the back of the train passes thrusting it forward.
