  • [Idea] Mark VII Monorails Tracker??

    I am a BIG fan of the new Mark VII Monorails, and I thought since there is so much going on with them right now, I thought we might do a "Tracker" with updates specifically about the monorails. Please choose yes or no on the poll whether this is a good idea or not. As soon as I get enough feedback, I'll start working on it.

      Aren't they pretty much done? The first one premiered over a year ago.

      I saw orange out testing the other night while driving down harbor. It didn't look any different from red other than all the side panels were removed.

        Details: New Mark VII Monorails slowly being phased in.
        Project Status: Mark VII Red - Open
        Mark VII Blue - Open
        Mark VII Orange - 2009

        This is what is currently on the DL Tracker. I want to make this Tracker more in detail and pretty much for the people interested in the Monorails. On this we can mainly post pictures of current updates and any information like how Monorail Orange just started testing, or what the new windows look like, etc.

          If you think there is enough information out there that you can maintain interest in a thread like that, then go for it. Honestly, there isn't much to say about the new Monorails -- Red and Blue are in regular use now, and Orange should be debuting soon.

            I sure hope not!

            If what they have right now is the best that they can do, then they are in a world of hurt!


            And yes, you'd think that a year of "use" would be enough time to get things right!

            But it's obviously not...


            We spent this past week at the DLH and rode the Monorail pretty much every day. Thank goodness for one-way trips. For being "new", they are in terrible shape. M-Red was the only one operating. The interior paint is peeling off of the seats, the interior trim is loose and dangling in places, the windows still have the test holes cut in them so there is no protection from the rain, the overheating issue is still present, etc...

            Yep, they're pretty much done alright...

            Sad. Very sad.

              That is very true, but I really think the only reason I would put this thread is not really to track anything much, but to post exciting news or pictures that have importance to us Monorail fans. It is really just to keep us informed about those little things before Orange debuts. It'll be pretty simple.

                Well at this point the attaction is and has been for a while not running at 100%! Red opened later than scheduled last year an having heat / air vent problems that are still not fixed Blue has been up and down and Orange has yet to start running taking passengers that was suppose to be up by last summer. I think they have a long way to go. Last June sucked going back and forth to the hotel as only purple was running. I hope they have the attaction running with at least 2 full time this June as it is along walk to the park entrance from the DLH.

                  Exactly! When I went on Friday, we rode Monorail Red, but not knowing it was a one-way trip only! We got off at DTD, but the line was SO long to go back that we just ended up WALKING BACK! By the way, the new Thread is up at http://micechat.com/forums/disneylan...er-thread.html

                    I'm closing this thread since the other has started
                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...
