"This book is a photographic history of toy monorails and similar types of toys. Included are one of a kind prototypes and other very rare specimens. There are examples of toy monorails from the early 1900s all the way to modern times; many of these monorails are from the 50s and 60s during the height of the space race and scifi movies.

"You'll find monorail toys from all over the world in this book - from Europe, Japan and the USA; and you'll savor the coverage of many tin litho examples, as well as the famous Disneyland monorails.”
