A monorail is a distinctive railway where the trains run on one single rail, often suspended above streets.
Monorails are not common but can be an important part of the landscape, especially for tourist maps. Sydney has a monorail as does Tokyo (going to Haneda airport).
Monorails are often included as transportation within a bigger tourist attraction, for example a theme park (such as Disneyland), zoos, and so on. Mappers may also want to include driver-less systems that occur within some big aiprorts for terminal transfer.
This tag should be applied to ways.
Where possible, create a way per track, and add a oneway=* tag to indicate which direction the trains generally travel in on that track.
