KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MONORAIL AND METRO RAIL
|It runs on single rail||It runs on two parallel rails just as traditional rails.|
|It runs on a single line laid on a beam in the air||it has an independent rail track but it has two rails and may not be high in the air.|
|monorail is narrower than the train itself||It runs underground, on ground and over the ground. It uses two rails to run.|
|Mono rail uses the principal of magnetic levitation.||metro rail uses the traditional approach. However it uses independent line.|
|It is called magnetic levitation as the train looks to be running in the air.||Electricity is used as energy to run it|
Ø Monorails were developed in order to connect two places where material must be transported without any delay and obstacle. It originated in the 50’s. .
Ø First of all Japan developed it further in order to solve the problem of heavy traffic jams.
Ø Hundreds of thousand passengers travel in monorail daily in Tokyo.
Ø The train is originated in Germany
Ø There looks a gap between wheels ate the rail.
Ø It is the fastest running train in the world. Its speed is 500kmph.
Ø Metro rail is mean of public transport in many big cities of the world.
Ø It runs underground, on ground and over the ground. It uses two rails to run.
Ø Some cities of the world which have very successful system of Metro Rail include Shanghai, London, New York, and Delhi.
Ø It is called metro as it runs mostly in metro cities of the world.
Ø The major difference between Mono Rail and Metro Rail is regarding their rails. Metro train uses two rails while mono rail uses a single rail.
Ø metro rail uses the traditional approach. However it uses independent line.
Ø Metro rails runs slower than monorail.
