The High-Speed Monorail Vehicle

Blue: Load-Bearing Wheels
Yellow: Guidance Wheels
Red: Seraphim Motor

Suspension Design

  • The high-speed monorail wraps around the guideway beam. Its vertical load is carried by two wheels which run on the bottom flange of the guideway beam (wheels at each end of each vehicle segment), and it is guided by two horizontally-mounted wheels which are higher up and run against the side the beam.

  • This wrap-around-the-beam design makes the high-speed monorail extraordinarily safe as it is virtually impossible to derail.

  • The center of gravity is low (the motors are mounted below the guide wheels), enabling it to turn tight corners at high speed and to withstand high cross-winds.

  • The high-speed monorail, with its unique suspension and with a special version of the linear motor, is expected to be capable of 300 MPH in some corridors.

  • The linear motor's reaction rail is mounted on the guideway beam, and its coils are mounted on the vehicle.

 

Cabin Design

         The interior is open throughout its length, like an aircraft's cabin. Think of the monorail as having a flexible fuselage.

         The cabin is 10' wide - about the same as MD Super 80 aircraft. The picture shows a typical urban system configuration.

NCT's high-speed monorail is an evolution of earlier monorail designs and exhibits greatly improved performance, allowing higher operating speeds and greater carrying capacity.

We invite you to e-mail Meneren principal, Steve Guthrie, if you would like to discuss a high-speed monorail system.

TransPort Ventures LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meneren Corporation was competitively selected by the State of Colorado to design, construct, and operate a 170 mile high-speed monorail system that will connect DIA (Denver International Airport), stop in the center of the City of Denver, and proceed up the Rocky Mountain corridor to the ski areas (including Vail), and on to the Eagle County Airport.


 

MagLift Technology has been designated a "Maglev" technology by the US Department of Transportation.  However, unlike fully levitating Maglev systems, MagLift is substantially lighter, lower cost, and can stay within highway right-of-ways.
