Here's a patch.

Maglev uses railroad graphics as fallback. Rationale to accept that is that it's considered just upgrade of railroad (does that make any sense?)

In addition to settings outlined in previous message:
- Can be built only to tiles that already has Railroad. Also hides Railroad from cluttering UI as it implies it anyway (just like Railroad implies Road)
- Does not affect "Big Land" units. They will be using Railroad (move cost 1/3) in the same tiles

(file #15745)

Just an idea how we could demo gen-roads in experimental ruleset as soon as third road type is possible.

Add road type "Maglev" available from "Superconductors".
Adjust move costs so that Road 1/3 -> 2/3, Railroad instant -> 1/3, Maglev instant. So unit with 3/3 movement would move 2 (using their 2 + 1 movement fragments) tiles a turn via Road, 3 (1+1+1) via Railroad, and anywher via Maglev.
Should some other bonuses provided by road types be adjusted?

Biggest obstacle in implementing this is that we would need gfx for maglev in all official tilesets.
