  • Monorail Blue not Returning to DL?

    I asked a monorail CM today if Monorail Blue would be returning to the park and he told me that right now they are running Purple and Red and that BLue would not be returning. He also told me that the park is getting two new Monorails!? Has anyone else heard this? I wonder what colors the new trains will be? Will these new monorails be Mark VI, or new Mark V's?

        Purple was only down for about a week. Red has been back for a long time. Neither have been refurbed...just general (and not so general) maintenance issues...

            I wonder if that CM wasn't doing a little double speak with you....when we were there pirates premier weekend we asked the same of one of the CMs one evening when we lucked into the front car. He told us there was NO blue monorail....silly, we all know it was trucked up to Vancouver BC for refurbing...perhaps the CM that told you Blue wasn't coming back was speaking correctly, LITERALLY blue isn't coming back, NEW blue is!
            Just countin' the days til the next visit!

                They are referring I think to Purple being down after the mishap near storage. Minor collision with slightly immobile object

                    Don't you love the double speak you get from CMs about important stuff happening On our trip we asked if Splash would be going into soft openings at all and the CM said that Splash would not be open until May 18th (this was on the 11th). But he said it with a sly grin as if to say "you're right, but I really can't tell you that". Sure enough, that night it soft opened.

                    You have to cut through the "official" statements they are allowed to make.

                    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                              Monorail chassis

                              I do believe you will find that the monorails at DLR have stainless steel chassis. Stainless steel is a terrible material for a vehicle that flexes and bends and turns.

                              If there is any truth to the rumors of non repairable monorails, this may be the reason.

                              Regards; KotF
