Here is a BBC» (British Broadcasting Corporation - home page) Video - https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-58588272

Watch out for my favourite bit just before the launch where the train staff in hazmat suits show their faith in the system by getting the heck out of there as fast as their legs will carry them.

The good news though is that the retro brake van-style system should have plenty of room for bikes and surfboards.

No need.

They are powered solely by the people's faith in The Dear Leader.
