Potential Baltimore maglev station locations narrowed; Port Covington out of the running

Federal regulators considering the proposed magnetic levitation or “maglev” train between Washington and Baltimore — which backers say could cut travel between the two cities to 15 minutes — have narrowed the list of potential station locations in both cities…

The proposed train line, which also would stop at BWI Marshall airport, is backed by Baltimore Washington Rapid Rail, or BWRR, a local railroad company formed to operate the maglev were it built.

The company says its technology, which was developed by the Japanese government and the private Central Japan Railway Co., could transport travelers between Washington and Baltimore in 15 minutes — and eventually from Washington to New York in an hour.
