Our favorite repeated theme, illustrated perfectly: monorail does NOT negotiate through traffic, it glides quickly and quietly above it.

The London "double-decker bus" train, just south of the Maharajalela Station.

Looking north from the Maharajalela Station platform, the line follows a heavily-traveled highway on one side, and a hill full of trees on the other.

As we get closer to downtown Kuala Lumpur, advertising on pylons and straddle bents becomes more apparent.

This pylon ad shows the recently expanded hours of operation (as of Spring 2004).
