Braves Face Hurdles In Plan For Train To Stadium

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – An Atlanta Braves executive says the team has been talking with a Georgia company for the past four years about the idea of creating a floating train to transport fans to Turner Field.

Officials say the idea is alluring, but there are also reasons to doubt whether the $30 million “magnetic levitation” train can be built.

The newspaper reports that despite a string of attempts over 20 years in at least three states, Marietta-based American Maglev has never launched a functional train.

Yet the Braves see promise in the proposal for an environmentally friendly electric train.

The team’s plan for the train was first reported by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
