LMF's Lego monorail system (#2) Full album with video. Masao Hidaka's Lego monorail system His monorail design is what got me into Lego monorails in the first place! However, the design isn't perfect and can have some problems. One of the biggest problems with it is the trouble it has taking curves. Even on very long stretches of cured track, the monorail will become very sluggish. Over some time of experimenting, I've come to two options. (#1), That the distance between guiders isn't the problem, but the distance between the drive wheels. Ideally the drive wheels should be as close together as possible. Like this for example. This however can cause some obvious problems in itself. Most notably if to much weight is applied to the far front or far back, the monorail may "buck up" when starting. Option (#2) is to remove one of the drive wheels, and replace it with a guider wheel. Like the example below. @FiliusRucilo uses this method in a similar way for his monorails. Both these examples work very well IMO, and can even take fairly tight curves. As for non motorized monorail cars, the same principal applies from the first example. Keep the wheels as close together as possible without compromising stability. LMF's Lego monorail switch track Full album with videos.
