The Monorail Anthropomorphic

Lachende schwebebahn

I know from reading your blog that you are a bit keen on anthropomorphized transportation. This week I stumbled upon an old cartoon celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wuppertal Schwebebahn from 1951. The "Laughing Schwebebahn" is not only smiling, but it also has wings. It's from Das Beste von der Schwebebahn in 50 Jahren (http://www.worldcat.org/title/beste-von-der-schwebebahn-in-50-jahren/oclc/8757312).


See wikipedia for more.

I am guessing this category (anthropomorphic monorails) is smaller than others, but please send in any other examples.
