Since the $5 million extension to the Disneyland amusement park near Los Angeles was opened last June, visitors have queued up daily for rides on its mile-long monorail, The two red and blue bullet-shaped trains running along an overhead line have each been carrying 1,000 passengers an hour on the curved and dipping track and there have been many favourable comments on _ the smoothness and speed of the operation. Some of these visitors have been town councillors and executives from local transport authorities in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, New York, New Orleans, British Columbia and Venezuela who have been evaluating the monorail system as a possible solution for the traffic congestion in their cities.
