FORT TIUNA, CARACAS 28 Dec' - Venezuelan President Chaves (photo) views a 1/10-scale working model of the TELMAGV maglev developed by Venezuela and being proposed for Caracas to La Guaira (capital of the Venezuelan state of Vargas and the country's chief port).





A working model - demonstrates electromagnetic suspension (EMS) and
linear induction motor (LIM) propulsion.





Alberto Serra explains how the EMS/LIM bogey works (no moving parts)





Dr Alberto Serra Vais (photos), from Universidad de Los Andes,
expresses the necessity to develop this
new type of transport._ ".. At the moment it is hoped to initiate
the second phase of the project, that will include tests of the
definitive vehicle in a route of two kilometers, to demonstrate what
can make this system, and to compare it with similar systems. When
saying of the Dr Alberto Serra Valls, this is the best way to
convince to somebody that it works and to know his costs real, this
section could be, for example, the section of ascent and slope of the
Wizard. .." (Babel Fish translation)

This Youtube video showing the 1/10 scale model in operation is a bit better quality than the above link.

Here's wiki on the TELMAGV

Venezuela es el único país latinoamericano que tiene planeado un tren electromagnético: el proyecto TELMAGV, presentado en diciembre del 2006 por los profesores de la Universidad de los Andes, Mérida, a Hugo Chávez.

Este interconectará la ciudad de Caracas con el puerto de La Guaira y el Aeropuerto Simón Bolívar. En el 2007 el proyecto fue presentado a la Asamblea Nacional de Venezuela.

TELMAGV fue iniciado en el Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas (IVIC) en 1967 y luego desarrollado en la Universidad de Los Andes. Hoy el equipo de investigación es liderado por el científico Alberto Serra.

Su tecnología se basa en usar un motor Lineal de Reluctancia para su propulsión, guía y sustentación. Dicho motor usaría las mismas fuerzas electromagnéticas que propulsan a los motores rotativos directamente entre el vehículo y el riel. Claro que no es precisamente un Maglev, ya que el TELMAGV posee un contacto eléctrico entre el vehículo y la vía.
