State of the art and current issues related with the RC and PSC structure system for the magnetic levitation train were investigated. The German and China magnetic levitation train adopted a new kind of a structure to enable high-speed transportation, which allows the use of the space over a ground. The loading from magnetic levitation trains is light-weight compared with a regular train due to load distribution to a supporting structure. Therefore, the magnetic levitation train is considered an economical and efficient transportation system, and is also an environmentally-sustainable structure. In this paper, the structural design and construction technology specific to a magnetic levitation train were discussed, and structural considerations related with an actual operation of the train were pointed out. In addition, the future research area of a magnetic levitation train was proposed
