linear railway
Society / Technology

The magnetically levitated high-speed intelligent railway system, the only mass transportation system on Beyond Coast. Also known as the linear rail. Has a top speed of 311 miles per hour. It uses smart railcars driven by linear motors, capable of real-time status monitoring via a series of actuators, as well as automatic navigation adjustment. There are 2 types of railway lines on Beyond – the Oval Lines and the Circle Lines. The Oval Lines travel around each of the colony's 3 surface areas, while the Circle Lines move between the 3 surface areas. Since its trains do not make contact with the ground, they produce little noise or vibration, making it the ideal transportation system for a space colony.
