We use 3 1mx2cn steam plasma tubes at 4 atmospheres.
This produces 26.6MW of power – which we cnovert into 2.4MW of power. A mag ley train today only uses 25MW.
So we can float a train above the metal strip – and the train will fly along at 780 mph. This is jet plane speed – 4 cm off the ground.
So we have no Fossil Fuels burn. We do Molecular Nuclear Fusion
2 H++r e- →n0
3 H++r n0->Er3+L+X-ray
5 O2++4 n0->8H++6e-
H fission is twice as energetic, so we may be loofing at 19.2MW, so we will run the tube at lower pressure. So no CO2, and no external power – which makes CO2 miles away.
So a steam plasma tube is a near inifite source of heat – off 10-17cc of regular water a year. No no coal or oil burn – and the return of the steam engine. Now we use a Carnot heat pump. To recover 85% of the energy, and 100% of the water. So no steam funnel.
Just very, very cheap transport. At jet speed.
