This is from Al's latest article and has me a bit puzzled. Does this mean the "new" Mark VII monorails will really just be new bodies on the Mark Vs just as the Mark Vs are new bodies on the Mark IIIs?Something else unavailable next June will be the new Disneyland monorails. The first of the refurbished trains now isn't expected to be delivered to Anaheim until September 2007, and it may not enter passenger service until the Christmas season. And that's just the first of the three new trains. The second and third train won't arrive until later in 2008, and it won't be until early 2009 before all three of the new monorails will be in service.
The fourth monorail in Disneyland's fleet will remain in mothballs off property, as the budget to refurbish it into the new body style was never approved.
