Maglev Toy Train

Back in my day trains used to run with its wheels on the ground, but thanks to the mysterious secrets of magnets and superconducting materials, trains can now not only run without any wheels... they don't even need to touch the ground, levitating just above its rails: these are known as MagLev trains.

Just watch it on video:

I don't know why, but I suddenly feel the urge to unpack some toy trains from my younger days. :)
