Replying To Morty:  "The world's first monorail was built to travel between Ballybunnion and Listowel.


Seriously."
There were a few before that.

The first was a one horse power (literally) affair at Cheshunt in 1825. Originally freight but later carried passengers. There were a few attempts in America from 1876 before the Listowel and Ballybunnion Railway opened in 1888. The L&B was quite long-lived though, closed down in 1924.
