Caption: An electric, monorail train in use during the installation of LEP, the Large Electron-Positron collider. Located at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. LEP accelerates electrons & positrons to an energy of 50 GeV. It is housed in a circular tunnel 100m underground & 27km in circumference. The monorail runs through the entire tunnel & is used to transport equipment & personnel to where they are needed. In this photo, the train is transporting a number of blue quadrupole electromagnets that will be used to focus the electrons & positrons as they circulate in opposite directions around LEP.

Release details: Model release not available. Property release not required.
