  • For movement in the mountains, according to the magazine, to be used a small two-wheeled monorail trains, equipped with a propeller and vertical stabilizer, tail-like part of the aircraft. This design should allow the train to develop greater speed and at the same time to maintain a stable equilibrium. Another two wheels, facing outward on both sides of the train, is used for stopping it.
