  • China's First Permanent Magnet Monorail Train Completes Successful Test Run

    China's first permanent magnet straddle-type monorail train has recently completed a successful test run in the city of Qingdao, Shandong Province. The train, produced by CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd., is the first permanent magnet straddle-type monorail train independently developed by China. It officially rolled off the assembly line on May 19, marking a key breakthrough in China's straddle-type monorail train industry. As an important urban transportation system, the monorail train features strong climbing capacity, a small turning radius, vast capacity, low noise, energy efficiency and environmentally friendly operation, with a much lower project cost compared with that of subway systems. The train can connect four, six or eight sections in accordance with operational requirement...

    In Wuppertal, Germany, there's the Schwebebahn: a suspended monorail that carries 80,000 people a day above the streets of the city, and above the river Wupper. It's a wonderful thing: but it wasn't the future of travel, and here's why.

    In this video is progress from the previous video. This layout began October 17, 2015. Since then I have added many more features, details, buildings, etc. I am still a work in progress of continuing the layout from my garage and then outside to the backyard alongside the fence. The goal is still to make a modern version of the Southern Pacific Daylight from San Francisco to Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, but for now the video goes from San Francisco to San Jose Diridon Station.

  • The Las Vegas Night Time Monorail ride in full HD

    The Las Vegas Monorail is moving along the Las Vegas strip every day. The question is will you choose to utilize this form of public transportation? You'll find the Las Vegas Monorail gliding above traffic at speeds reaching 50 miles per hour and you should be able to cover the route in approximately 14 minutes for $5.00. However, how long will it take you to walk to your hotel after you get off the Las Vegas Monorail? While the Las Vegas Monorail might be fast it is not always convenient. If you are in town for a convention the Las Vegas Monorail most likely will eliminate those long waits for a cab at the convention center.

  • E R Monorail San Francisco Layout

    Here is my modern version of an E R Monorail on a San Francisco Layout. On this same layout I will try to design the Southern Pacific Daylight from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Beautiful Victorian Homes which are located on Steiner and Hayes Street. Somewhat version of Playland Amusement Park that used to be located on Fulton Street and Cabrillo Street before it was demolished in the early 1970s. Eventually, it will have BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) subway system, Candlestick Park, and other features to be added soon and most of all, my progress of this layout as it continues to grow. All feedback is appreciated for tips, tricks, and ideas. An update of this layout was posted 1/3/2017. Here is the link to see the many changes https://youtu.be/fvyzcSz9hXI. Enjoy...

The train can connect four, six or eight sections in accordance with operational requirements. The train body is 2.9 meters wide. It is referred to as a Hercules of its kind for carrying 1,448 passengers in six sections with a total length of 90.8 meters. The vehicle's designed speed is 80 kilometers per hour with a 30-year service life. Liu Yuwen, deputy director of Sifang's technology center, said the train driven by permanent magnet synchronous motors is superior in energy conservation. It is estimated that the train requires 10 percent less power than the one using asynchronous motors. "The permanent magnet synchronous motors feature high power, high efficiency and energy conservation. For example, the train can feed back energy while braking. They help save 10 percent of energy compared with the others," said Liu. At present, over 50 straddle-type monorails are being used around the world. Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality was the first in the country when it opened its 55-km straddle-beam monorail system in June 2005.
