    The Century 21 Exposition took place between April 21 and October 21, 1962 and is also known as the Seattle World's Fair."Transport 21, on Boulevard 21, is sponsored by four transcontinental railways serving Seattle and the Pacific Northwest ... The top attraction here is an operating model of the "Levatrain," presented through the cooperation of the Ford Motor Company. The "Levatrain" is a wheel-less vehicle capable of carrying freight and passengers at speeds of from 200 to 500 miles an hour. It slides on a cushion of air provided by turbo-compressors. The train is moved by turbo-fan engines and it glides over special rail surfaces." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962). Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962.
