Here are a few pics of the gas-powered emergency monorail car at Disney World I took in 2004.
I was in Disney World in June of 2004 when I took these. There was a pretty bad storm coming-over (not a hurricane, fortunately!) and lightning had apparently hit a portion of the monorail track which caused something to blow and shut-down all of the trains.
We were at the front of the line to head home when this happened and therefore, had a very good view of the little pusher car (I guess that’s what you’d call it) that is used in emerency situations. It was gas powered and appeared to come out of the Contemporary Resort building, but it’s tough to say for sure from the angle I was at.
I figured I should snap some pics as it’s not too often that you get to see the “behind the scenes” working of a Disney Park like this. Also, during this trip, Space Mountain got shut-down several times and I got some good lights-on views from the People Mover but sadly, could not get my camera out fast enough to get the shots.
