    The train jerks around...

    https://youtu.be/_D9dTHuyUXg?t=35

    There are examples in amusement park roller coasters.

    A benefit is that derailment works against gravity. Then again, derailment
    also works against the elevated rail, depending on how high it is.
    Oscillation? Sturdy pillars so close to the railroad track might be a
    hazard... if it falls off of the rail.

    Lighter is better for suspension. The obvious benefit of a platform is
    having earth for support. Unlikely they (truthfully) discuss weight
    carrying.

    But if you elevate a railway, you may as well suspend the cars.

    I decided to go with hanging my monitor instead of putting it on a
    platform, decades ago. Took lots of thought, but ended up being a good decision. Also using suspension for speakers.

    Further, John Doe stated the following in message-id <svsh05$lbh$5@dont-email.me>
    (http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164904625100) posted Fri, 4 Mar 2022
    08:01:09 -0000 (UTC):

    Compared to other regulars, Bozo contributes practically nothing
    except insults to this group.

    Yet, since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) John Doe's post ratio to
    USENET (**) has been 59.0% of its posts contributing "nothing except
    insults" to USENET.

    ** Since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) John Doe has posted at
    least 1550 articles to USENET. Of which 165 have been pure insults and
    749 have been John Doe "troll format" postings.

    The John Dope troll stated the following in message-id <sdhn7c$pkp$4@dont-email.me>:

    The troll doesn't even know how to format a USENET post...

    And the John Dope troll stated the following in message-id <sg3kr7$qt5$1@dont-email.me>:

    The reason Bozo cannot figure out how to get Google to keep from
    breaking its lines in inappropriate places is because Bozo is
    CLUELESS...

    And yet, the clueless John Dope troll has itself posted yet another
    incorrectly formatted USENET posting on Sat, 04 Jun 2022 18:31:24 GMT in message-id <0yNmK.42741$4OW.12831@usenetxs.com>.

    This posting is a public service announcement for any google groups
    readers who happen by to point out that John Dope does not even follow
    the rules it uses to troll other posters.

    After a bit of YouTubing...
    They have lots of similar trains in China.
    Apparently it's not propaganda.

    You are about 120 years late ...

    Google for 'Wuppertal monorail'.
