    2 Monorail questions

    Sorry if they've been asked, but I have two Monorail questions.

    1. When are they going to CLEAN the darn track? It's so grimy and dirty...it doesn't look like it's been cleaned in ages. It really is kind of ugly. How about they clean it or paint it?

    2. When are the new trains coming, and when does the ride get closed? Will it be running next April, or closed to install the new trains?

    The track is cleaned every night, but not DEEP Cleaned.

    The new trains will arrive by 2008.

    P4 is the fastest speed setting on the monorail acceleration stick.

    It goes:
    1. B1 (Soft Brake) and B2 (Hard Brake) for the brakes,
    2. N for neutral, and
    3. P1 (5-10 mph), P2 (10-15 mph), P3 (15-20), and P4 (20+) for the speeds
    if I remember correctly..

    Doesn't anyone think the track could be a bit whiter?

    All of Tomorrowland could be a bit whiter. Perhaps, when all the hoopla is over, they can get back to painting stuff.

    The only way to really *clean* it is to sandblast it. Now you know how much of a hassle this is.

    The other solution is to start painting it again, and keep painting it regularly.

    I believe the black tire marks are somewhat needed and good for the monorail. Just like a black roadway surface, bits of rubber from the tires fill in tiny holes and smooth out the ride while providing additional traction.

    Re: 2 Monorail questions

    Also, is Monorail Orange being reverse engineered to make the new monorails, or is that speculation dead?

    Yes it has been dissected beyond recognition so they can build new monorails correctly.
