They're called 'electric trains'.

And last time I checked, the UK is the United Kingdom, not the Ukraine.

old idea, put 1/2 of a transformer in the road, the other half in the vehicle. they have wireless cell phone chargers like that now.

no pesky connector to fail

Was there a link? I'd like to see the math on charging 1000 cars stalled
on the freeway at rush hour.
And the ROI of installing the thing.
And the position of the tree-huggers who are gonna oppose anything
like riding a foot above a huge magnetic field.

Sheeples don't want to live close to a high tension line. Wonder how this
affect the steering on steel wheel cars or their steel bodies. Ask Greg
Fretwell what size cable needed to power this fantasy. Who pays? Long
distances???

Turin and Genoa started charging buses that way in 2002. Gumi, the
second largest city in Korea, began in 2013. They can charge with 85%
efficiency at 100kw. It means a much smaller battery and no down time.
They might put chargers where buses normally sit for a few minutes,
and on hills.
