    Other locomotives can't hold a candle to this baby. Arguably the best built, best performing, and best looking Diesel out on the rails.

    That's comparing apples to oranges. It isn't a regular implemented technology. It's not even a diesel or has wheels. Plus it looks like poop. And it isn't even a locomotive,

    Actually a maglev is a magnetic locomotive.

    It isn't a locomotive. It is a train set.

    My opinion, all trains are awesome, and if it is a locomotive on the rails, its a train.

    ocaly the maglev has no motors. So it doesn't not qualify as a locomotives

    Well, you see, a locomotive doesn't need an engine, the earliest locomotives used horses, which are, suprise, not engines, and, really, trains aren't diesel, they are Diesel-Electric, a diesel motor creates electricity which runs to several electric engines to turn the wheels of the train due to electric motors not needing gears, just throwing that out there...

    And, back in the 50s when they did a lot of stupid things... They made a hovering locomotive, much like the maglev of today, exept it sucked serious balls, about 2 where made and they, I think, used magnatation, which, if looked at closer, is a source of propulsion, essentially a motor....

    So, technically, the MagLev is a locomotive on which the engine is the Magnetic Force created between the rails and the train, just wanted to clarify a bit

    I agreed because i know my trains, not train TYPE but trains if they are really a train or not. so you are correct.

    well car john what you mean is

    Any circuit or mechanism they count as an engine like you said for the horse the horse is an engine since its pulling along the carriage and diesel locomotives (the name locomotive i belive is from spanish and im not sure on this but crazy motive i belive) use engines to power there wheels. Not to mention the steam engines used pistons with steam to push metal to turn rods that turn wheels
