English translation:Guideway Construction Principle
Explanation:
I've been doing a little reading about the Transrapid. First, they don't talk about rails, but guideways. Eine Schiene verlegen is to lay or shift a rail. There's also some sort of system for flexibly shifting the guideway. Maybe shifting is what you're looking for. See URL below.
