Superfast Shinkansen Trains and Maglev in A-Train 9

One of the features of A train 9 V4 Japanese Railways Simulator that we don’t touch on often enough are the Shinkansen, maglev and superfast trains and setting them up.

As part of a project, it is possible to have superfast, maglev, bullet trains come through your region. While these projects can be very expensive and take a  lot of resource to set up, they do provide fantastic long term revenue.

If you like to make your region look themost modern, up to date and impressive about, then adding these features is also a great way to imrove.

Take a look at these videos which explain how it all works – and another that shows the real maglev systems in operation.


Here’s the real Maglev in real life.
