This photo is a JR-Maglev transport train.  Please note that this is no ordinary train Smile. Its not your TTC nor your run-of-the-mill streetcar.

The JR-Maglev train can travel at speeds over 500 miles an hour. Now on average, that’s as fast as a commercial airplane! The train uses a very large number of magnets so the trains actually levitates, and currently holds the record for the world’s fastest moving railed vehicle.

You can learn more about the JR-Maglev from this wikipedia article found here.
