  • New Monorail Info? (Merged)

    It has been awhile since I seen a Monorail update. Is there any new information. Are they still behind schedule? Any new photos from north of the border?

    Re: New Monorail Info?

    Robsmustang posted at another board that all signs of the Monorail have been removed from the work site near Vancouver, Canada.

    Last I heard, the first Mark VII is still scheduled to arrive this fall, but when it arrives it will only be brought out in the late evenings and early morning for testing to not interrupt the current operation during park hours. It is expected to have weeks of testing before DOSH will approve it for use with guests. Once it has operated with guests for a few weeks, then one of the other two Monorails will head off to Canada for the major rebuilding.

                Is the frame from Monorail Blue being re-used for the new Mark VII? Or did they use Blue for reverse engineering?

                    User Robsmustang lives up there and has taken photos of Monorail Orange in the yard of the company doing the work. Last I heard, there are none visible in the outside yard - either they're all done, or they are doing it inside.

                    They're stripping off the bodies and rebuilding the new trains on top of the old chassis - again. These are the 1967 Mark-III chassis that were already reworked once into Mark-V trains.

                    Paging Robsmustang, Please pick up the MiceChat courtesy phone...

                      ok folks here is the latest news north of the border .... The monorails have moved from the location that they were. i went by to visit the empty yard again yesterday. i do believe i may have found them again inside one of the buildings. which makes it very hard to see them. i will try to get some pics but i can't promise anything. next weekend i will be at the park to ride purple and red though.
