Detail in photgraph of a model of Track on the Bottom Monorail Half.

Schilowsky's Monorail Car.

Extract from Chapter V;-
73. Another ingenious application of the gyroscope to a monorail car
has lately (Feb., 1914) been made by Monsieur Schilowsky, a Russian

So far as experiments have gone at present the weight of the gyroscope
is designed to be something between 1/10th and 1/25th of the whole
weight of the car, while the two pendulums together are about 1/3rd
of the weight of the gyroscope.

The author is indebted to M. Schilosky both for the diagrams and the
photograph from which plate IV has been made. A model of the car has
been presented by the inventor to the Science Museum at South
Kensington and can be viewed by the public at anytime. An article
on this monorail is to be found in the issue of The Engineer
for January 23, 1914.

Spinning Tops and Gyroscopic Motion.
