World of Knowledge (Australia) - - Question & Answers -

For any­one who has ever com­plained that pass­ing trains ruin the coun­try­side idyll, the new high-tech pro­ject in Ja­pan will be wel­come. The first in­vis­i­ble trains will be­gin trav­el­ling there in 2018. Like a chameleon they will blend into the land­scape. How ex­actly does that work? Well, the trains will be clad in a semi-re­flec­tive skin de­signed to mir­ror the scenery they are streak­ing through. Seven eight-car­riage trains will come into op­er­a­tion in Tokyo be­tween 2018 and 2019. The pro­ject is ex­pected to cost around $125 mil­lion.
