Bennie Railplane

Introduction

This was a rapid passenger system proposed by George Bennie to the London and North Eastern Railway. A car (bullet shaped with a propellor at each end) ran on an elevated trackway. The demonstration track was built over the Burnbrae branch of the Glasgow and Milngavie Junction Railway. The demonstration track was scrapped after the Second World War.
