Disneyland's new monorail remains sidetracked

MonorailEvery once in a while, visitors to the Magic Kingdom might catch sight of the new, candy-red colored monorail cars gliding overhead. But don't try and get on board. Several months after they were to go into service, the custom-made Mark VII monorail cars are still being tested to eliminate numerous problems, reports the Daily Travel & Deal blog.

One issue, notable during our current heat wave, is that the windows in the new trains do not allow for enough air circulation, creating uncomfortably warm conditions inside. The new trains, like their predecessors, are NOT air conditioned for the most part.

Does this explain why Snow White will be adding two new dwarfs: Sweaty and Stinky.
