The ultimate toy on rails is obviously a smaller copy of the world’s fastest train. And that is exactly what the Linear Liner Maglev Train Toy ( $458.00 ) is – a miniature model of Japan’s “Bullet” Train.
Packed with the same technology as Central Japan Railway’s L0 superconducting maglev train, this thing floats 2mm above the tracks, which means no friction involved and a speed equal to an impressive 500 km/h ( 310 miles/h )! This is the first toy train to use magnetic suspension, making it run faster than any other previous models. The Linear Liner by Takara Tomy comes with speed sensors and voice announcements, plus a train station, bridge and tunnel. Available 18 September 2015. Details in the video
