Superconducting Magnetic Levitation (Maglev)

Superconducting Magnetic Levitation (Maglev)
By exposing a superconducting material to liquid nitrogen, it gains the ability to trap magnetic fields. This results in levitation when placed above a metallic object.

If I don't get the Korean tank! I think I might get one of these instead!

Just out of curiosity! How much energy does it take to create liquid nitrogen? Would it use my oil generating the electricity to make the liquid nitrogen in comparison to the amount of diesel used in a regular locomotive?

That's a very good question, it looks like we've gotta do some research.
