AppearancesTRON: Uprising

The Light Rail is a vehicle designed by Daniel Simon for the television series TRON: Uprising. It is a vehicle similar to a monorail. It runs on a beam of light, which is supported by tall pylons when not passing through tunnels or under structures. Light Rail trains often turn upside down to avoid collisions or when passing through low spaces. It is unknown how the passengers inside stay upright during this process.

The compartment doors are between each car, accessible by steps when the train is at rest; the steps rise to form a barrier when the train is in motion. Cargo compartments appear to have no windows. A single broad circuit runs the length of each train, merging with a constantly-turning circuit resembling a wheel at the train's central engine unit.

The beam of light along which the Light Rail travels is not harmful to the touch, but will carry a program who falls into it away as swiftly as it carries a train, and is difficult to escape without help. If the beam itself is interrupted, it will quickly reform. However, if its supports are removed, the beam can cut out, endangering oncoming trains.

Argon City's Light Rail has been seen to carry both passengers and cargo. The train makes local stops and has an express line from Argon Park to Purgos, which Galt used to get away quickly when he stole Beck's disc.
