Behind the scenes at the Seattle Monorail

Today the Seattle Monorail was celebrating its 50th birthday, so they were offering some behind-the-scene tours that the public usually doesn’t get access to. So, at noon, Lorie and I got a tour of the workshop, which is below the pedestrian platform at the Seattle Center end of the monorail line. The blue train was running as normal today, but the red train was parked with its access panels opened.

It wasn’t very exciting, but it was a unique opportunity to see the inner workings of the trains.

You can also see a video of the monorail and more information here.

    Thats pretty cool to get to see. Glad you were able to take advantage of the opportunity. If you haven’t see it KTCS 9 did a film about the 1962 Worlds Fair, its quite good.
