PostSubject: Monorail Orange at Disneyland   Fri Aug 15, 2008 12:14 am

The new Mark VII Monorail Orange has arrived at the Disneyland Resort as of today. This is the third (and I believe final) Mark VII monorail for Disneyland. The set includes: Red, Blue, and Orange.

Monorail Red has been taking limited passengers due to the lack of air conditioning in the main cabins. The Mark V Monorail Purple has still been operating along with Red. Blue has been on the rails a few times.

Pictures can be found in a simple Google search. Thumbs Up

Here is an image of the Mark VI monorails at Disney World:






And here are a few images of the new Mark VII monorails at Disneyland:

(Real)

The Mark V Monorail Purple that is still at Disneyland is almost exactly like the Mark VI at Disney World (of course right now it's themed to the Year of a Million Dreams, but originally it was white with a purple stripe.

The new Mark VII monorails are modeled after the original Alweg Monorail system that was installed at Disneyland in 1959.

The different U.S. Disney resorts (WDW, and DLR) tend to switch who gets each version. Disneyland got Mark V, Disney World got Mark VI, and now Disneyland got Mark VII.

For future reference,

Mark V = Version 5 of the Monorails
Mark VI = Version 6
Mark VII = Version 7
(Roman numerals)

I LOVE the monorails if you haven't noticed!

As cool as the new monorails at Disneyland look, I don't think Disney should put a monorail of that style at Disney World. I have not been to Disney World, but I associate the "white with a color stripe" style monorail with Disney World more than Disneyland. The original monorails (having a station in Tomorrowland) at Disneyland were meant to be futuristic, and now they are back to looking like that - while Disney World's monorails don't stop inside the parks and have used relatively the same design since opening. They were never meant to have the futuristic look as Disneyland's Monorail.

I do suppose the monorails are some-what supposed to be futuristic at Disney World, but again, not as much as Disneyland's.

Just my opinion.

Figment Bounce they seem to have a lot of similarities tho. it seems that the Disneyland monorail is more streamlined (curved and rounded..), and has more of a straight design towards the bottom. it also has more windows, and has a partial bubble design in the main cabin. ( more of an open glass view) it still has a lot of the same features as the DisneyWorld monorails, but the Disneyland one's just look so much cooler!
