    For those monorail enthusiest on the board.

    TMS posted a new photo essay. Great shots of the undercarriage.

    Drool....

    Thanks for the link, a lot of great photos there!

    Nice to see a site that actually appreciates the Monorail instead of bashing them and saying "my five year old can do a better job than Disney!"

    Thanks for the link! Looking at those pictures reminded me of how much I loved the monorail as a kid and still do.

    Thanks!

    Re: For those monorail enthusiest on the board.

    GREAT photo essay with incredible shots. However, how could you not include any shots of the DCA portion? Especially when the Golden Gate Bridge is going away. There are such cool angles in the Soarin' area and the Grand Californian. Someone go back and get those, before the landscape around there changes - at least just for documentation purposes.
    Thanx again for posting. Great society website, too, with a good purpose.

    Roger: Not at any time. Only when it's funny.

    Great essay and photos! I know one of the monorail pilots featured in it, too! He's my friend's dad, great guy. Most of those shots were beautiful, thanks for sharing!

    Re: For those monorail enthusiest on the board.

    That was the best photo essay I have seen in awhile!!!! For once, it was refreashing to read something positive about the new monorails. Also a nice mention of Scot Drake. I had a chance to meet him at the Monorail poster signing. Really nice guy!!! Two thumbs up !!!

    That was really neat! Love it very much

    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
