Gallery Image Our design for a K'nex monorail uses the same idea of horizontally-opposed rubber-tired wheels as is used on actual monorails such as the ones in Disneyland and Disney World. Dual tires keep the monorail on top of a narrow, bendable track created from a continuous sequence of yellow connectors and green rods. Bracing at right angles to the track is used to hold curvature. Pairs of yellow rods allow a flexible linkage between separate monorail "cars" as they negotiate the curved track. Further work could involve the addition of car bodies over the monorail chassis and possibly motorization.
