Tomorrowland Monorail



Judging by the comment factor, the Golden Horseshoe is somewhat of a bomb, so I am returning to the ever popular Tomorrowland, this time with a nice shot of the Blue Monorail and the Autopia. These 2 slides are from another undated batch...yes, putting the call out again. Shot 2 begs the eternal question—why do older men tend to pull their paints up so high? It just can’t be comfortable.



Check out my regular Disneyland website (click here); I have changed the format and updated the photos. Feedback is welcome!

Must be 1959-60 for this version of the Monorail. Great Pics Dave and I love the new format of your website. DD

That first photo is an unusual angle...was it taken from the Skyway loading platform?

Jordan - you mean tomorrowland WAS a nice place to hang. And major - not sure of where the pic was taken - skyway loading platform or tomorrowland train station?

I would say because of the elevation of the shot, the Tomorrowland Skyway station. I like the older style Autopia cars in the first shot.

The monorail looks really slick in the second picture. I'm curious about the Santa Fe Railroad logo on top of the monorail loading platform- did they sponsor the monorail? If so, that's definitely news to me.

It was originally sponsored by both Alweg and Santa Fe; Disney had a contract that Santa Fe's name was to be on all "railroad" attractions.

Thanks for the info.
