Here is a photograph of the famous, or should I say infamous, Monorail. Opened in 1979 by Terry Wogan, it apparently only lasted for a few weeks. I’ve never met anyone who actually went on it. Please blog your memories.

Im afraid I don’t remember it but why don’t we ask Terry? http://www.facebook.com/TerryWogan
I remember going on this as a kid of 11ish.. It was very exciting for me as I was (still am) interested in all kinds of mechanical / electrical things! I remember it wasn’t as smooth as I was expecting – you could feel the carriages running over the track joins etc. I guess looking at it from the ground it looked like it glided on air! I think we had heard some stories about it breaking down and people having to be rescued by a ladder – fortunately that wasn’t our experience 🙂 Happy memories!
I went on this on a Sunday-school outing one year. Must have been late 70’s. I was unaware it lasted for such a short time though,,,
