Passengers’ Luggage Handled Speedily by Monorail Line
HANDLING package freight to and from ocean-going vessels near Hamburg, Germany, is done in an extremely efficient and satisfactory manner. A unique monorail line carries bundles, trunks, etc., over an extensive tract of land and water to the passenger depot.
The cars are drawn by a gasoline motor along a rail suspension line at a rapid rate of speed. By this means, passengers’ luggage is quickly transported to and from a ship. Steel ribbed girders support the rail.
