Using existing railways for a personal rapid transit system (Synchrotrain)

Here's a video uploaded to YouTube in May that is kind of interesting:

also in German:

The concept seems to resemble Vancouver's Skytrain a bit (but smaller) in being fully automated, and would be able to transport cars as well as passengers. The small size is also reminiscent of another proposed system called Vectus (scroll down to the end of the post) though naturally the range is completely different.

More information can be found here, although a search for Synchrotrain on Google News turns up nothing at the moment.
