Behind the Scenes at Disneyland Monorail Roundhouse

The Disney Parks Blog has posted a great video showing for the first time the behind the scenes of Disneyland Monorail in the roundhouse. As you can imagine, the monorails don't stay out at night and all goes inside a facility where dozens of technicians take care that everything is working fine. Only two monorails are out at a time and the third one stays inside as a back up if something wrong happen to one of the two others.

Peter Gonzalez, electrician for the Disneyland monorails tell you more about it in the video below.

As usual i did for you HD screen captures of the best shots!

Some great additional shots of the monorail running outside...

Let's end with two others Disney Parks video. In the first one Disneyland monorail pilot Mike Gibson shares his five tips for piloting the Disneyland monorail...

And the second one is showing the point of view that guests have when they have the luck to sit in the monorail nose cone with the pilot. The music of the video is terrible so you might want to cut the sound.
