Meigs Steam Monorail

Meigs Steam Monorail

Hoping to provide a modern, safe transportation system for Boston, in 1886 Joe V. Meigs built a stretch of monorail track and a three-car monorail steam train to demonstrate the feasibility of his design.

The Meigs Experimental Steam Monorail consists of several Poser figures with many operating parts.

(The model was built for Poser but loads and operates in DAZ Studio – see the ReadMe for particulars).

The Meigs Steam Monorail figures have full ERC control at the Body level:

Engine, Tender, and Passenger Car
