High-speed rails to run on sides of skyscrapers in near future

ANI  |  Washington 

Two British designers Christopher Christophi and Lucas Mazarrasa have come up with a unique concept that might see high-speed trains running to the side of a skyscraper.

This unusual transportation concept, called the Hyper-Speed Vertical Train Hub is to put a high-speed rail station in a skyscraper where the trains would shoot down the sides of the building into underground tunnels to their destinations, Discovery News reported.

The train cars will pivot like ferris wheel seats so that everyone stays upright as the train moves between vertical and horizontal positions.

According to the concept, each car would hold ten people in two rows facing each other.
