    Bologna, Italy is working on a solar powered monorail system. There are some great pics on the links provided.

    “The system is designed to operate using solar energy captured by photovoltaic panels placed at each monorail station and along the track‚Äôs south-facing side. Since the solar system installed directly on the monorail infrastructure, the landscape below is not disturbed with extra equipment. Running at a height from 7 meters up to 25 meters, the Energy Belt monorail is supported by slender piers, giving the system a very small footprint along its 5,084 meters of track.” (Inhabitat.com)
