For that sort of thing, a standard railway would be far more suited - higher speeds, higher capacity, and interoperability with the existing rail network.

I can't think of a single scenario where a monorail is the ideal option, really. Except perhaps for those short monorail loops that some amusement parks have.

Axver, is the minimum 60 minutes for each disc?
I don't know, I'm doing mine as an iPod playlist. Disc splits annoy me.

I couldn't believe all the teenage mothers and how just about everyone had a stereotypically bogan haircut.

I'm going to annoy the shit out of you then. I have two discs, each with two sides.

I hate them too normally, but somehow it works here.

I'm almost done my first draft.

To quote Lyle Lanley on The Simpsons, "mono means one and rail means rail".

Wikipedia knows all: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monorail

I love the second picture down, the experimental gyroscopically balanced monorail.

LMP did something like that one time around too. Assuming phanan doesn't change the rules, you can use any format you like really, as long as you stay within the 160 minutes. You could be crazy and specify you're doing cassettes for all the rules care.

Mine's going to end up being somewhere between 120-130 minutes.

I'm doing the whole thing on iTunes as well, but flow-wise (WTF IS FLOW???) I think me playlist works best the way I'm making it. I don't know. Usually those things bug me too, but it just seems like the way to go here.

The main problem with monorails is that it is very hard to change tracks, especially at speed. You just can't make a viable network out of them - many monorail systems are small and simply run in a continuous loop to avoid needing to change tracks anywhere. They're also much less flexible than regular trains in terms of catering for heightened demand. They have capacity issues in the first place, and if you get a large crowd, you're in trouble. You can't simply just add another carriage like with a normal train.
