The first monorail was made in Russia in 1820 by Ivan Elmanov. Attempts at creating monorail alternatives to conventional railways have been made since the early part of the 19th century.

1825 - Cheshunt Railway

The first passenger carrying monorail celebrated a grand opening June 25th, 1825. It had a one-horse power engine...literally. Based on a 1821 patent by Henry Robinson Palmer, the Cheshunt Railway was actually built to carry bricks, but made monorail history by carrying passengers at its opening

THE ALWEG SEATTLE MONORAIL
is the direct descendant of the first fullscale test train developed by the Alweg company in Cologne, Germany, during the early 1950s (see the "Cologne" pages of the ALWEG ARCHIVES). Both of the Seattle trains were built in Germany and were expedited from Bremen by freighter to the United States in January 1962. Together with American engineers and technicians the Alweg engineers from Cologne supervised the construction of the concrete pylons and beams, their placement and the installation of the "Blue and Red Trains" onto the line. (The above photo of the "Red Train" was taken from one of the windows of the Alweg Company's office by Alweg mechanical engineer Rolf Krischer in 1962.
