Hi, I am Kartik from India.I want to build a magnetic train model for our college science exhibition. Give me an idea or any internet link.I am preferrably looking for electromagnetic train. :confused:

I've got the perfect project for you. Checkout http://www.all-science-fair-projects.com/project422_89.html

What grade/level are you in? If you think this is too difficult, let me know and I'll point you towards an easier project.

Think you could let us know how your project progresses? Perhaps you could consider posting your project description, hypothesis, observations etc on this forum - and I'll give you my comments on how you might be able to improve upon it?

well I learnt that some reality trains like speed trains con't run on tracts they run on magnets opposite ploes but the thing i'm confused :confused: is that how do they push forward? :confused:

PLEASE, i need help A.S.A.P i am building a model maglev train. i nedd instruction on how to build a maglev train that works. The instructions must tell how to build the train and the train must be levitated and propelled by magnets. please help email any instructions to shaneal_patel@hotmail.com. :) :) :) :)

I am also very interested in building a maglev. I was thinking about cutting an oval from a piece of plywood, staple-gunning cardboard sides on it for walls, lining the bottom with magnets and that would be the track. you could attatch another few magnets on a piece of clear plastic for a little car to push around.
For propulsion i was thinking about attatching a little fan (like from a computer) to the back of the car powered by a small battery.

However, you might need a pretty long train of magnets, plus, the track probably needs to have a hemispherical cross-section to ensure that there's magnetic repelling from the sides (to keep the train on the "track"). A computer CPU fan would do the trick of propelling it forward - good thinking.

PS: If you don't mind, I deleted the link to the magnet sales page, as we don't allow direct linking to online stores or links of a commercial nature in the forums. Thanks for your understanding.

My son would like to build a maglev train for a 5th grade science project. Is it easy to build the aluminum track and is it relatively easy to put a computer fan on back?

:cool: Every thing would be easy except putting a computer fan on the back. But if you sit and think for a while there would be nothing to it. Good Luck!!!!
