    New Monorails

    Does anyone have any new info on the new Monorails?
    I know blue was being re-built in Canada, and I have seen the concept art of the new design. When will the first new train be operating in Disneyland?

    I noticed purple and red were running yesterday. Aren't the new trains coming next year?

    Thanks for everyones info so far, won't it be interesting to see both the mark V and mark VII on the same track. I wonder if they will have a separate line to ride the new trains?

    I think it might be very wise of Disney to avoid using the two train models. If it is posssible, I could see it being considered to have the Mark VIIs delivered and tested and just make a full switch.

    They are using the the old mark V chassis right? O.k., I see, they will just keep 2 online until all four have been rebuilt. I wonder if there will be a great increase of ridership due to Nemo opening, and sleek new trains circling above? Hopefully 2 trains will be able to support this.

    Re: New Monorails

    They are hoping the have the first new Monorail premiere with the opening of the Subs. This way it'd be similar to when the Subs and Monorail both first opened together. But it may only be a 50/50 chance of that happening so far, that is why no one has heard any news about it. I would think Disney would release info about it happening once they know when the first one will be ready.

    It would be wise of Disney to open the new monorail on the same day that the subs open.

    I'm sure that will never happen, unless it's used for some kind of promtion about the change. Besides as soon as the "new" trains are ready to run i'm sure the old trains will go out for there upgrade.

    And someone correct me if i'm wrong but, aren't there only going to be 3 new monorails?

    Re: New Monorails

    I was wondering when we would see the new monorails too. I remember they were delayed from when they were supposed to be here.

    I was kinda hoping they would refurb the track...it's lookin' pretty shabby.
