    Yeah, there's no possibility of them ever letting guests in the pilot cabin ever again.

    They'd probably come out smelling a lot worse.

    Monorail Peach

    I am glad that they are expanding the fleet, given the amount of hours each day that they are in service. They could certainly use a few more trains to allow for more maintenance time on this aging fleet.

    I remember a few years ago speaking with a CM, on the platform, who was talking about them placing an order for the "next" generation of trains. Add that to the list, on the rumors thread.

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

    Re: Monorail Peach

    I don't know if I'd consider this expanding the fleet. They were down at least two monorails because of that accident a few years ago. This "new" addition is just pieces from both of those placed together to make one functioning unit.

    Even Disney didn't use the term "expansion". They just said they were adding another monorail to the fleet.

    They are only down one at this point as Teal has been in service for a while - that was made by re-marrying the two undamaged ends and coaches.

    Peach is the remaining coaches repaired as necessary, plus remanufactured/repaired cabs.

    Re: Monorail Peach

    It freaks me out a bit that the monorail is made from damaged parts of the monorail in the accident...I am sure Disney is making every effort to ensure they are safe and everything, but its like riding in a Lemon car...you wouldn't buy a car that you knew was in a major accident, would you?

    I am sure I am not the only one that has been on a broken down monorail before...not only does it delay your schedule, but its irritating because it shuts down the whole rail for awhile. I just hope these recycled monorails don't have technical difficulties that lead to issues on the rails.

    The monorails did not crash because they were faulty. It was a mistake/mix-up. Simple as that.

    I know, I've read the reports, but you can't possibly think that things weren't damaged in the accident..

    And you can't possibly think that Disney isn't looking into that and has repaired any broken parts.
