Night and Day: The Monorail



Just getting back into the swing of things from the holidays, my first post for the New Year features three vintage shots of the Monorail. The first is an evening shot from August 1962.

The yellow Monorail during daylight, circa July 1963:



One more of the Yellow Monorail, from February 1971. How about those festive balloons? A+ to our vintage photographer for composition and color!

Something about that Mk3 made it the best one ever IMHO.

The 70s vintage monorails set the standard! KS

Really love the monorail, though it's such a shame that the only place that you can ride something like that is at a Disney park. You really have to wonder why that's the case.

In fact, I'm actually pondering that right now with an essay that I'll be releasing later this week on my blog. :D

Oh, the best models of the monorail and they're in order: Mk. III (second best) and then the Mk. II: the right lines and a nice amount of painted surface. Thanks for the work Dave.
