Sorry for the late post; I just got back from DLand and am a little wiped out—those Spring Break crowds can sure wear a guy out! So, to tide you over until I get my second wind, here are 3 images of the Monorail. First one is a badly faded 1959/1960 image of the Monorail passing over the Nautilus & The Submarine Voyage. The Richfield Eagle can be seen looming overhead in the background.
Shot #2 is a Mark 3 Monorail from 1968, passing by the entrance to the park:
This color 1968 view of the Blue Monorail was taken from the beloved parking lot. I have a feeling that once DCA finishes its huge memory, the old parking lot will not be quite as beloved as before. You can see in the closeup shot that Santa Fe still had their fingers on things as of 1968:
