Well, I would believe so, with a 10 strength gun vs a 14 armor, then the railgun would penetrate on a 4+ (remember the AP 1) The monolith also can not claim the moving fast rule that skimmers can, because it must move over 6 inches, which a monolith can't do because of its rules.
At least that is what it looks like to me, might want to wait till a veteran posts what he thinks though to get a full confirmation.

Yes... Yes you can...

10+6>14

So, I wouldn't see why not. *shrug*

Even a Fusion Blaster can, albeit, it's a lot harder to do.

Have you looked at the Necron reference sheet from Games Workshop? It has the stats for the Monolith, as well as all the rest of the Necron units. (The link I mentioned takes you to the page with all GW's 40K reference sheets.)

The living metal rule just states that weapons that usually get extra penetration dice don't get them against the monolith.

It doesn't state anything about not being able to penetrate it normally tho.

So yes it can.
