NUTZ Monoriel

Share

Not much to say. Just an ilustrtion for my book. Its a monoriel train leaving a City on a Island named "NUTZ City". I think the draw is pretty good but I know that the desing of the monorail could be better... Don't mentionet I already have a better model for it but is a 3D animation and graphics...

For those who don't know a monoriel is a train that have no wheels. It levitates over a special platform wich is called its rail (then the name: mono (one) rail). Very powerful electromagnets repels under the train and over the platform so the magnetism "lift" the train on the air making it levitate (it's not powerfull enough or the train couldn't be heavy enough to pull under the ground the rail). To solve the problem of a non-straight "lifting" (so the train can be pulled out of the rail and not only derail but it can be even destroyed) it has some magnets to the sides of the rail so it can't be pulled out of the rail. To make it move; magnets in front of the train change their polarity to make the train go foward or magnets behind it cand make the work to pull it backwards. Interesting isn't it? Lots of tons and people can travel at supersonic speeds in a very fast train levitating in the air with no vibrations! Unfortunately the only real monoriels are experimental and not for public usage... And the one big-toy in Disneyland... But one day I may meet you on board of one of these!
