If the monorail needs to cross a "standard railroad" line then it could either go up & over on a trestle (not the best) or go under the track in a culvert of some sort. If you're meaning a crossing of 2 monorails, that would be a problem since on an "A" frame line (Sonoma & Epsom Salts monorails), there are side bearers to keep the equipment upright. I don't see how that could be "engineered" but then I ain't no engineer. I can see where a standard railroad would be better, capable of hauling more tonnage, etc. but the monorails were built in places where it would be damn near impossible to locate even an "extra narrow gauge" roadbed.
Remember however, there's a prototype for ANYTHING!

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
