      Hi Mark,

      One liner violation:
      Yes, a monorail that floats on air pressure is a flying railway!

      Most stuff on the internet says that the SF cable-cars
      first ran in 1873 - but ye olde dates and times can become
      unproductive hairsplitting. Seeing John Dunno's reference
      to the pictures of LA horse-drawn streetcars has inspired
      a notion to design something usable for Z scale---
      But getting those tiny zinc-cast horses to pull the trolleys
      would be the real challenge...oats wont work.

        1855 Western railroads blocked by snow
        1874 Jesse James gang robs train at Gads Hill MO
        1932 US railway unions accept 10% wage reduction

        Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train.
