The Pacific Atlantic Monotrain was the record-breaking monotrain built by Pacific Atlantic Monorail Corporation, and servicing the whole of America.
It is fully automated to prevent major crashes, but this was foiled when a real emergency occurred.

To The Brink Of Disaster
On the Monotrain, Jeff calls International Rescue as Brains attempts to re-activate the brakes. He fails twice, but eventually manages to stop the train - right in the middle of the collapsing bridge.
Brains applies the brakes.

As far as is known, only two cutaway drawings of the monotrains exist. Both were illustrated by Graham Bleathman. The first appeared in a Redan comic, and the other featured in the Haynes Thunderbirds manual.
