However, this will be for my intercity and international, trains. Intercity means this: It starts in one city in stops in another. International means between countries. It will also be in the 21st Century, so actual solar panels are available. However, these trains will be underground, power supplied by electricity power lines from elsewhere.
I want a different design, still accommodating yet made for 21st Century big cities, like New York City, London, Tokyo, and Beijing. The trains, on a system called Intracity, will only supply a single city, though possible outer city parts will be possible (Outer city being just outside the main city area).
Here are the Task an Intracity Rail System in these cities must be up to:
- Hold large numbers of people at a time.
- Accommodate wings, taurs, people the size of small children, people nearly twice as tall as humans, tails, and actual raptors.
- Be able to fit underground.
- May be triple or even quadruple rowed, but everyone must be able to know what stop they're at.
How would these Trains be Designed?
