  • Short Summary

    Nice shots of a very odd and futuristic looking method of transport - a bit like a monorail.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Milngavie, Nr Glasgow. The 'George Bennie' railplane! Novel method of high speed transport.... claimed to be cheaper, faster and safer .... successfully tried out."

    Milngavie, Nr. Glasgow, Scotland.

    People climb steps to get to raised platform to board this new form of transport. They are welcomed as they get on board.

    This strange form of transport passes the camera. It appears to be a suspended monorail system with the carriage driven by a propellor at either end. Various shots of the George Bennie Railplane. It looks very futuristic.

    Mr Bennie explains the machine to those standing listening.
