I don't have much information, but I was told that "they travel on
{tIHmey}".

As the word is obviously based on the word for shaft of speer, I think
that a railway track has two tIHmey, i.e. 2 rails.

The other question is, if there is a monorail, would that be a {tIH} -
or is the idea still having multiple tIHmey added ina  row, touching
with the ends?
