Wow, that looks cool, Brian. How are you powering it? Human, electric (solar?) or gas? You may need idler wheels low on the sides to keep it from wobbling. Even then you may have resonance issues (similar real-world monorails did). You'll definitely need to keep the weight low to avoid putting much twisting force on your beams.

This is a cool dual-mode monorail: http://www.ruf.dk/

The Listowel - Ballybunion monorail is also pretty neat. http://www.monorails.org/tMspages/Listowel.html
