How does a maglev train get on-board power?

I'm telling you my understandings from Maglev system Transrapid (TR07):
first question: the linear generators intergrated into the support magnets supply power for the train, so no wiring is required.
second question: The magnetic field produced by the train is about 100 ÁTesla (just double stronger than earth's magnetic field), therefore its impact on passengers as well as radio comm system is extremely small.
