Train sights in North America

This elevated, electric monorail is hardly big enough to serve the mass-transit needs of the city, and has become something of a tourist attraction. Whatever its virtues as a commuting tool, the Metromover is a really great (and free!) way to see central Miami from a height (which helps, given the skyscraper-canyon nature of Downtown). Because it's gratis, Metromover has a reputation as a hangout for the homeless, but at the time of research a fair few folks were using it to commute as well, a number the media reported was climbing due to the price of gas.
Just east of Travel Town, the Los Angeles Live Steamers is a group of local folks with a passion for scale-model locomotives. On Sunday afternoons, they offer free rides on their one-eighth-size model trains.
