systems are known all over the world and they tend to be very popular.
Some say that monorails are "sexy".
The RUF monorail is a very simple triangular construction.
This construction has a lot of advantages:
It is a minimal construction. It has good torsional stiffness and
is able to carry a relatively high load without bending too much
2) The top of the rail can
be used for both propulsion and braking. This way the vehicles are
very safe and the lateral guidance is perfect. Derailment is impossible.
3) Snow will not pile up on the rail and rain will
not be collected on the guideway.
visual impact is minimal.
5) The triangular
shape is very natural for a vehicle which must change from road
driving to rail "riding" during a trip.
