HIGH SPEED TRANSPORT!
The "bicycle" type monorail, designed by Eben Moody Boynton was built in 1894 between East Patchogue and Bellport, Long Island, NY in collaboration with Frederick W. Dunton. Mr. Dunton was only able to complete a one and a half mile test track, running north to south on a location in East Patchogue. Unfortunately, the full cross island route was never completed. The train could top speeds of 60 miles per hour!!!
