When the decision was made to remove the Peoplemover from Tomorrowland, I don't think the "powers that be" had any idea how much folks would miss it. And it seems that each year the yearning to have it back grows and grows. Don't hold your breath...
Anyway, I sure love this unusual view looking across the load platform (which rotated at the same speed as the moving Peoplemover trains - SO cool!). One of the escalators that took people up (or down) can be seen; don't you want to hop into that empty red vehicle? Even the Goodyear logo is great - simple, and somehow cheerfully optimistic.
This second photo might be an odd composition, but it gives you a good idea of how complex the intertwining network of Autopia, Monorail, and Peoplemover tracks was. A genuine tour de force of Imagineering!
