article on monorails, from 1956
Way back in the twentieth century it was common for science fiction to contain some science, and therefore it was common for science fiction magazines to employ a science columnist. For many years the science columnist for Galaxy magazine was Willy Ley. While rereading some of his columns I stumbled on this: https://archive.org/details/Galaxy_v12n02_1956-06/page/n49/mode/2up
which gives considerable space to the Wupperthal monorail, so I felt this was the place to post it.

Excellent reading, and thanks for the link. I was at Wuppertal in 2019, and enjoyed a trip on the Schwebebahn (or Danglebahn!). It reopened in 2019 after a huge maintenance project, and all
new cars. Here's one on the move, and the power truck. Chris UK.
