Monorail Gliding Redly, 1961

Deja Vu! That mysterious feeling that you experienced something before. (By the way, "redly" is a real adverb! Who knew).

Remember the photos of the yellow Monorail from a few weeks ago? The same photographer took these three pictures of the red Monorail from the same location (the Disneyland Hotel station). And guess what? There are even more pictures of this futuristic train to come. This guy was just KArazee about them Monorails!


The details aren't that different from the previous photos. However, notice those boxes underneath the track? They are full of 1955 castmember badges, waiting to be melted down into ash trays.


I dig seeing the Santa Fe logo on the train of the future. I wonder how Alweg felt about that development? Well, looks like my train is here, I'm going to take it to

Thank you for presenting more shots from the Disneyland Hotel monorail station...

I fondly remember standing on that same platform as a child, waiting to return to Disneyland after resting at the hotel in the afternoons. What a great experience that was!

If you have any other casual shots from the Disneyland Hotel, please post them...

God, I love the smell of Monorails in the morning. Truly awesome pix. The Richfield and Western Airlines signs are not bad either. How cool are those? Thanks Major
