another Monorail Society Exclusive!

On February 26th, 2004, David M. Ice and I were hosted by the kind people of KL Monorail. A presentation was made for us on the history of the system, as well a look at plans for the future of the company. We had the pleasure of meeting with David Chew, Chairman of MTrans, who's office has a spectacular view looking down upon the monorail as it meanders along the Kelang River. We discussed the status of monorail throughout the world, and Mr. Chew expressed his support of what the Monorail Society is doing to spread the word.

Just inside the front door of Wisma Monorail is this beautiful model of an MTrans monorail train.

Monorail City, as envisioned by model makers. When complete, it will consist of 30,000 square feet of food and retail space. Tun Sambanthan Station is to right.

As I mentioned earlier, Chairman David Chew and MTrans employees have a terrific view from the Wisma Monorail building.

An ultra-modern control room allows technicians to monitor all aspects of operations.

The center screen shows a diagram of the monorail maintenance and storage depot, which is where we're going next.
