    Monorail Peach

    I haven't seen anything posted on this yet and if i just missed it sorry.

    Disney noticed earlier this week that WDW will return to a 12 monorail system later this fall. Here is what Disney posted on their blog.

    Also, we’re thrilled to announce that Walt Disney World Resort will bring an additional Monorail train into service. It’ll be identified by a new peach-colored stripe when it joins the fleet this fall. Over the next few weeks you may spot us testing the train on the Monorail beams before we bring it in to be painted.
    I am excited to here that they are return to a 12 monorail fleet. I can't wait to see Monorail Peach on my next visit.

    Re: Monorail Peach

    And heres what WDWmagic had to say about the matter

    The Disney Parks Blog today confirmed that Monorail Peach will be the new identifier of Walt Disney World's 12th monorail which is set to return to service later this year. Since the accident of July 2009, the monorail system has been running on a reduced number of trains. Monorail Teal entered service shortly afterwards, in November 2009, and since then work has been ongoing building the new cabs for the 12th monorail to complete the fleet. It is expected that Monorail Peach will begin testing in the next few weeks, prior to receiving its final paint.

    The Daily Disney at the Orlando Sentinel
    Disney said the new train is made with a combination of new parts and components recycled from the two trains that collided. Another of the resort's trains is made entirely of vehicles from the trains involved in the accident.

    Re: Monorail Peach

    Nice to add another color, but I'm not so sure I'll be rushing to line up to ride it. Unless it's new and smells clean, a ride on a monorail is the same, no matter what color is on the outside. Once you're in, you don't know what the heck color you're riding anyway. No biggie.

    Re: Monorail Peach

    Maybe they should replace the monorails with moving sidewalks so when you are next to a person who failed to wear long lasting deodorant you can give them a nice push into the Disney created Seven Seas Lagoon.
