How about making the planned Mag-lev rails require some fancy looking electromagnets?
ElectroMagnet Rails ElectroMagnet
cables ElectroMagnet cables
Electric Rails would be 150% HS rail speed and Mag-Lev 300%.
Keeping Mag-Lev Rails would require 0.1 EU/t per Electromagnet (0,3 EU/t per rail), energy is NOT conducted by electromagnets, you must run wires across the entire railway.
If Electromagnets runs out of energy while someone is traveling at them with speeds higher than Electric Rails, it will cause the Mag-lev Cart to hit violently the ground , for 45 damage (22,5 hearts)
Mag-Lev Rails can only make curves at the same speed at Electric Rails or it will fail to hold the cart and it will hit the electromagnets, dealing damage.
Love this idea with some addition:
1. Mglev Rails cannot connet to normal rails (use an adaptor if you want to).
Different voltage of energy that connected to the rails may change the function, like: EV = Safely turning in hight speed mode, HV = Accelerate,
MV = Maintain Speed, LV = Decelerate.
3. Why just make people die? BOOM!!!!!!
