The Toyo-View 180-750 Telescoping Monorail is the same 39mm diameter telescoping monorail that is supplied as a standard part of the VX125 camera. It is offered here as a replacement for a damaged or lost monorail, but also as an upgrade for owners of the VX125R camera (which is originally delivered with a fixed 125mm long monorail).
The VX125's monorail locks in 3 positions, increasing its stability. In its smallest position, the camera's entire dimensions are just 12 x 9 x 5" (30 x 23 x 13cm). It is quite an accomplishment for a full-featured view camera with a 158mm lensboard specification (which makes for easy-to-use recessed lensboards and permits generous movements thanks to larger bellows) to fit in a briefcase, but the VX does just that.
