A slope car (スロープカー, surōpukā?) is a small automated monorail, or a fusion between monorail, people mover, and rack railway. It is a brand name of Kaho Manufacturing. Since this mode of transportation is relatively unknown, it lacks widely accepted generic name, other than the simple "monorail". The system, however, is different from normal modern monorails in many ways. It is a development from industrial monorails used in 1960s orchards. Slope cars are installed in more than 80 places in Japan and South Korea.
Famous quotes containing the word car:
“Between here and that old car outside there are twenty-five paces. Make them. Now.”
—Vladimir Nabokov (18991977)
