I love the Disneyland Monorail -- it is one of those iconic images that practically screams "Disneyland"! However, the technology dates from the 1950's and is nothing more than rubber pneumatic tires riding on a concrete beam. It is no longer "cutting edge".
But how to update the monorail technology without destroying the classic monorail train esthetic? One answer -- redesign both the undercarriage of the trains and concrete beam track for magnetic levitation (MAGLEV) technology!
Not only would this retrofit make for an exciting public relations announcement, but the ride quality of the monorail would improve signficantly (especially if the monorail route is expanded to include the rumored "Third Gate").
What do my fellow Armchair Imagineers think?
