How Do Maglev Trains Stop?

Answer

Maglev Trains stop when the current flowing in the electromagnets powering them stops. When the current stops, the metal through which the current is flowing looses its magnet property. Hence the train which was resisting magnet forces and running along the track will stop moving.
