C. F. M. T. Lartigue was born in France and is credited with the invention of the Steam Monorail. In 1886 he built a demonstration model in London on part of the site now occupied by Westminster Cathedral. Subsequently the Listowel & Ballybunion Railway in Ireland was built on the same principle in 1888.

The bulk of the instructions for the model consist of a wealth of excellent IsoMec drawings covering no less than fifteen pages of the twenty four page booklet, which also includes a detailed parts list.
The twenty eight page booklet includes nine full colour photographs and some fourteen other miscellaneous illustrations which include original working drawings of the prototype, and a Parts List.
