The Gyroscope Monorail System (1912)

August 15, 1912 Fort Wayne Sentinel (Fort Wayne, IN)

The August 15, 1912 Fort Wayne Sentinel (Fort Wayne, IN) ran a short piece about how the gyroscope monorail system was the mass transit wave of the future. An excerpt as well as the full article appear below:

On the left, a common scene when the gyroscope monorail system comes into general use. It looks dangerous,  but is perfectly safe. On the right, above, monorail system in operation in Prussia, more than eight miles long and mostly overhanging the river Wupper. Each car carries fifty passengers, weighs fourteen tons and is suspended from a single rail. Below, sketch of monorail system planned to connect Liverpool and Manchester, England, with cars running 120 miles an hour.
