THE MONORAIL ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
THE MONORAIL ON THE FARM. In a country like South Australia where large areas of land are being opened up and where facilities for transport have to be provided so as to expeditiously and economically carry produce from the land to the nearest markets, every means whereby this can be accomplished de- mands the closest inspection and trial. In many countries the monorail has &nbsp; been put to conisderable use in handling farm produce. So far as Australia is con- cerned it is practically a novelty, but in the mallee country several miles of this means of transport were laid down last year, and the system proved itself an eco- nomical means of handling the season's wheat. In the mallee country east and south of the Murray, and also on the large &nbsp; tracts of country along the west coast which are to be served by running through them main lines of railway, doubtless this system of transport will commend itself to those who are dealing with the ques- tion of efficient...
