A very interesting Article and photograph from The Houston Press in 1957. Does anyone know how this endeavor turned out? I was only six years old when this was written and I have no knowledge about it.

Mystery Solved

    Monorail, Incorporated built a short test track of their suspended system at Arrowhead Park in Houston, Texas. Each bogie was powered by a 310-horsepower Packard automobile engine. The driver was seated high above the passenger carriage on one of the two bogies. After eight months of testing, the track was dismantled and rebuilt at the Texas State fairgrounds where it ran for many years. Its promoters claimed it could reach speeds of 160 km but no Skyway transit installations were ever built.
