    Monorail Purple Gets TOWED Into TL Station

    Who ya gonna call???

    When a Monorail breaks down...

    AAA???

    Easter Sunday, about 10:30 pm, while enjoying the SandBox Band at the Tomorrowland Terrace, we heard an unusual noise coming from above our heads. We looked up and saw a tractor type of train towing Monorail Purple into the TL Station. It was full of guests.

    Once they let the guests out, the tractor then pushed Monorail Purple backwards and into the maintenance building.

    I asked the CM's that were guarding the station entrance what happened, but I got the usual response, "technical difficulties".

    Whatever it was, it wasn't too bad. Purple was back up and running about 11:20 pm.

    Seeing a Monorail being towed around on the track was a first for us.

    Sorry that I couldn't get a pic. It was too dark, and too far away.

    Enjoy!

    I saw a similar thing happen with Monorail Blue in November of 2004:
