Kim Pedersen invented the world’s first rideable garden monorail known as The Niles Monorail. He thought of the idea back in 1969, but his Dad wouldn’t give him a permit to build one in their backyard… so 27 years later, Kim built one in his own backyard. The project took 5 years to complete, it has 36 pylons, the entire length of the track is 299′ 9″, and the total cost of track, train and associated hardware was $4,070.07, which works out to be $13.57 per foot. Good work Kim, you had a dream and made it real! [Thanks Stephen L.]
