Museum in bid to preserve '1960s UK hovertrain'

A museum is hoping to raise money to preserve a hovertrain that threatened to revolutionise travel in the 1960s.

The monorail transport was an elevated, high speed hovertrain that was tested on a track on the Cambridgeshire Fens before being scrapped by the government.

The Railworld museum in Peterborough museum is storing the last known prototype and hopes to raise fund to put it under cover.

BBC Inside Out East is broadcast on Monday 11 Sept on BBC One at 19:30 BST and for 30 days on the BBC iPlayer thereafter.
