    New Monorail Red arrives at Disneyland - News and Photos

    This morning, The new Monorail Red (formally Blue) arrived and was placed on the track.

    I was there taking photos (check the link below)

    Also, Brady MacDonald at the LA Times also has written about the arrival. Check out his article, and Disney provided photos at this link.

    http://travel.latimes.com/daily-deal-blog/?p=1147

    FYI, the dates that Brady MacDonald used for the second and third trains were provided by Disney, and seem VERY optimistic. IMHO, do not expect them to arrive that soon..... I would say the second train late in 2008, and the third mid-2009.

    DB - Thanks for the photos and the link to the LA times piece. First reaction, I think I like it. I like the blue tint to the windows.

    They're pretty spiffy. I'm excited to see them in person once they go online! Not so sure how I feel about the whole central island seating idea, though.

    Cool! I'm excited to see it in action - and to hear how people like the new seating.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    She's beautiful. Can you imagine how her sisters will look in the future? They definitely need to send Mark V Red next. It would be confusing having to Monorail Reds.

    And I can confirm, no way for testing the next few weeks, they will be testing ONLY inside the Barn until the second week of January, and then you can expect to see it in the early morning and late evening hours on weekdays (when the park is closed) for a few weeks, while the Monorail is fully tested and approved by Disney and DOSH.

    Sometime in February is the current expected date for Guests to be able to ride.

    I want the bubble also!

    So kind disappointed, but nicer than we have now.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    They look so nice. They color shifting paint job sounds like it will be really cool to see in person.
