It looks cool & hilarious at the same time. For a tracked hovercraft concept (if I can call this such) this one contains so many details that were drawn only for the sake of overall looks.

it doesn't use tracks, it may need a prepared surface but it really does not need it as it operates much like the hover ships from Matrix:D and yes has details to make it looks awesome!:D

I thought it would need track to hold it on course and be a part of the linear motor since I see it has neither propulsion nor thrusters.

Hover pads, like the ones that were used in "The Matrix":D 6 primary ones and 8 secondary for steering:D originally we were talking about a track it would need but the shear size my client was talking about... I couldn't see it turning even a mild corner due to the shear size of it and the fact that current/conventional mag-lev train tech and expected tech just could not allow for the size and length of this units specs... I went for a trackless unit.

How does it turn then or is it a one way train? And what makes it also move beside just hovering?

the hover pads provide repulsion from the ground surface, tilting the pads in a direction gives it movement as the repulsion is now down and away to move it forwards.... you should just watch Matrix again is you don't understand the fact that I keep saying.. "its like "the Matrix" hover ships...

From what you described it reminds me Cushioncraft's CC2 or in case of row of round cushions - Bertin's Terraplane BC4 ([link]). It was not bad for little experimental hovercrafts but for something like on your drawing it's a pure exaggeration. Same as if you would draw A380 with 10 decks & 1 km wingspan just because it would "look cool". Besides, one of the reasons why an air cushion train was a pointless idea is because of increased wear of skirts due to high speed.
