Potentially interesting news from the excellent organization Monorails.org, mentions a new spurline to be added near the Ticket and Transportation Center. This short track extension will contain a new switch, a place to house a work tractor (used to push/pull trains that have lost power back to the shop), and enough room to park a reserve train to be held for when demand requires it.
Whether this is a reaction to an aging fleet that seems to require more maintenance and downtime every day, preparation to an expanded Monorail system, or perhaps a little of both, remains to be seen. Either way, it’s cool to see the first expansion to the monorail line since 1982’s EPCOT Center loop was added.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic to see a new spur that traveled from Epcot to Animal Kingdom with a stop at Hollywood Studios? A dream come true for monorail fans (like myself).
Is this the start of the Monorail expansion we've all dreamed about? Or something to make life a bit easier? http://bit.ly/d7PN6o
