Background: SYNOPSIS: As the 1965 World's Fair hastens to get underway, a technician swings 40 feet up in the air to inspect the Monorail.The ultra-modern trains glide silently on rubber tires along a steel track.Three million visitors experienced the excitement of their first ride in it last year and twice that many will go abroad now.Used in other countries, it could soon dot the American landscape.One suggestion has been made to place the Monorail above the center lane of auto express-ways and some traffic experts also see the Monorail as the answer to the car explosion in cities.Meanwhile, it is solving the question of how visitors will circle the Lake Area of the World's Fair for a dramatic view of the nation's biggest attraction.
