    China has unveiled the world's first 'railless' train - a train that runs on virtual tracks! China is also testing a bus that can straddle the road, and allow traffic to pass under it. The new train is part of China's attempts to develop "intelligent rail express system". Instead of railway tracks, the train runs on rubber tyres. The train can move at a maximum speed of 70 km/hour.
