    Re: I found Monorail "Blue" today!

    I really don't think that photo is of Disney's Monorail Blue. The "quarter-window" is wrong. This looks like a municipal bus!

    Canada? Well, so much for me going by. I figured they'd find someone in the same region, like last time...

    Great catch, Rob! Your assignment now is to bring a camera every time you head out in that general direction.

    That's gotta be blue... look closely, they have the same slanted interior front and back walls that the monorails have. Same diagonal windows on the ends. We're just not used to seeing them stripped down like that. They worked pretty fast on that. Wasn't that long ago we had pics of them on the freeway up to Canada. Can't wait for a higher res shot.

    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

    Now for your mission, Is to have a Camera in your car and when you are in the area is to take a picture of the monorail blue.

    If you can once a week.

    no it is not in surrey it is actually in PoCo (port coquitlam). I went by today to get some more pictures with a better camara and guess what i found? a original nose cone from "blue" aswell as what i believe to be two brand new nose cones that are wrapped up in plastic. i have the pictues and i believe i will send them to Darkbeer so he can post them up for me.

    I can't help it if it follows me everywhere! I'd say I had this trip planned before it did, but that's probably not true.

    Re: I found Monorail "Blue" today!

    Here is a crop photo of the Drive motor and the frame.

    I thank RobosMustang to give me the permission to use the picture and crop it to show the drive Frame by the gate.

    Re: I found Monorail "Blue" today!

    I thought the monorail rebuilds were being done in-house at WDI and that Bombardier wasn't involved. What happened?

    i thought they would go to bombardier aswell but it seems every thing is here. i was looking at the website for this company and it says that they have made rollercoasters and drive systems for Disney and sixflags before.

    Bombader or whoever might be working with them... technically the reverse engineering was in house, now the engeineering and rebuilds will be done with the experts and there warentees... incase they break something... (remembers vegas)

    Re: I found Monorail "Blue" today!

    I'm wondering if those nose cones might possibly be the cones from Orange. Those may have been shipped as well.
