A Monorail for Seattle?
A while back, tipster Christian G, let us know that Seattle was hoping to get some new mass transit in the form of a monorail. From his blog Obvious Diversion he provided the following details: There will be about 16 stations throughout Seattle with trains arriving every eight minutes and apparently if all goes to plan and the populace embrace it, this could increase to one every three minutes. "The trains will have regenerative braking to recycle the energy lost in slowing down a train." Fingers are crossed that the project can hit the ground (or the sky) running on about 1 December 2010. If you want all the lowdown then point your mouse over to the Seattle Monorail Project, who go by the URL of ::elevated.org
