Non-stop Train Prototype Answered

A train that doesn't ever stop or slow down? Sounds ridiculous (ly efficient). This design is a pretty interesting take on the concept, though liability issues and real-world feasibility will probably keep this from ever making it past the drawing board.

Presumably the train stops every once in a while (at the ends of the track, or maybe once per lap if it's a loop), this just means the train doesn't have to stop at every station. If someone's having a baby they get off like everyone else does, and use the massive deceleration of the boarding "shuttle" to assist with delivery like a baby centrifuge...
