RAILROADS IN THE SKY (Jul, 1956)

RAILROADS IN THE SKY

Monorails promise swift and economical transportation for congested cities.

By Archie Robertson

HERE’S a brand-new way of travel for American commuters—the overhead, suspended train. In a monorail coach, light and roomy as a luxurious airliner and faster than a surface train, you will skim along above the crowded downtown streets, looking with thankfulness at your escape from a misery of crawling cars, traffic fumes, honking horns, whistling cops and squealing brakes. Whether you’re just going downtown to shop or commuting to work 50 miles from your home, a monorail will take you where you’re going two or three times as fast as conventional surface transportation.

Passengers’ Luggage Handled Speedily by Monorail Line (Jul, 1929)

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.

Gyroscope Monorail Car to Travel 300 Miles per Hour (Feb, 1934)

Gyroscope Monorail Car to Travel 300 Miles per Hour

This German monorail will revolutionize rail transportation. At 300 miles per hour it will meet the challenge of the air transport lines.

RAILROADS may challenge the increased popularity of air travel by developing a superspeed monorail car. Balanced by gyroscope and controlled by radio, the gyroscope monorail would be capable of more than 300 miles an hour, its inventor claims.
