The drawing of the structure of Elmanov's monorail.

Ivan Kirillovich Elmanov (Russian: Иван Кириллович Эльманов) was a Russian inventor. In 1820 he created a "road on pillars"[citation needed], a kind of monorail located in Myachkovo village, near Moscow. That was the first known monorail in the world. However the carriages were horse-drawn, and the wheels were set on the pillar structure, not on the carriages.
