  • Patent number: 6925941
    Abstract: Elevated train comprised of one or more wagons (1) that move suspended from a rail (2) or the like. This rail is provided at the train stops with at least two transverse gaps that determine a segment (5) from which said train is suspended, with this segment in turn suspended from elevation device (7) that allow its displacement in a vertical sense together with said train between an upper position for circulation and a bottom one in which it rests on or is next to the ground.
