The future of train transportation might be pneumatic tubes and magnets. The 89-year old entrepreneur wants to redesign the realroad into a modern twist taking inspiration from very old train ideas. Max P. Schlienger of Flight Rail is a retired engineer and he built a gaint train set, known as the VECTORR system, that travels through his vineyard in Medocino, California. 

The train depends on magnets and is pulled along with pressure and vacuum tubes. Between the rails lies a PVC pipe, 12 inches in diameter, connected to a pump that can draw all of the air out of the pipe or fill it. Since it is powered by electricity and uses magnets, it could run on renewable sources of energy. 

Just goes to show you, you are never too old to create something new!
