The Niles Monorail
In October of 2001, TMS President Kim Pedersen dedicated the Niles Monorail, thereby introducing a new hobby to the world...rideable garden monorails. What follows are two photo essays on the backyard creation: one is a tour of the system and the other follows the history of its development. Whether others decide to take up this unique hobby remains to be seen. At the very least, these images certainly indicate the devotion our president has to monorails (or fanaticism, depending on your point of view)! Photographs are by members of the Pedersen family (unless otherwise noted) and are all copyrighted by The Monorail Society. For those of you visiting this page because you saw the Niles Monorail on TV or in the press, please be sure to explore the rest of The Monorail Society Website for a wealth of information and photographs on this fascinating mode of transit!
