No walk-through access on these trains, however windows allow us to see what's going on in other cars.
The guideway is fabricated in steel, yet the support columns are concrete. Monorail looks good along a tree-lined road and doesn't hinder traffic or pedestrians below from going about their daily business.
From the other side of the lake, we see one of the trains passing Ostankino Tower, a combination television broadcast and tourist view structure that is one of the tallest towers in the world.
