Reply to "Intriguing old tinplate: aerial trams and monorails"

Jim O'C posted:

The Japanese tin manufacturers were "into" monorails and overhead railways as well. Bandai, Cragstan, Haji, KTO, Line Mar, Nomura all had overhead or monorail sets available.

And we had our share from US manufacturers too with Wen Mac, Jet Rail Express, Wham-O, even Kenner  (all plastic of course). 

I also like the Bolide from France and the Bing from Germany.

With propeller drive ??  I'm supposing it used a manually-wound rubber band, like simple model airplanes use ... ?
