E-Ticket Magazine - Fall 2001

For you Disney fans, the Fall 2001 issue of E-Ticket magazine is a feast for the eyes and brain. Bob Gurr, designer of the original Buck Rogers-inspired trains, tells the tale of how Walt developed the famous Disneyland-ALWEG Monorail System. Included are images of Walt with study models of the system, construction images of Mark I and Mark II trains, as well as a fantastic two-page aerial photo of the monorail and Tomorrowland soon after it opened in 1959. Collectible magazines of monorails are shown in another two-page spread. Noticeably absent from the issue is any mention of current-day efforts to promote Walt Disney's vision of monorails for urban transit (i.e. TMS). Information on obtaining this issue and others can be found at the E-Ticket website.
