The Niles Monorail Tour
Page Three of Five

This little grade is our Casey Junior hill. I think I can, I think I can. With this turn we get over the fence, around a tree, and avoid having to cross too closely to people standing on the diving board. Monorails can go all sorts of places, can't they?

Another view from the railroad track. This is the tightest turn on the circuit and the highest track at over eight feet up.

Back "in the park," we head down towards the house.

This section was rebuilt after the prior "coaster hill" track provided us with some uncomfortable ride moments. Two sections were reprofiled and installed in one day. Yes, that is a real switch. The spur track leads to a train storage barn on the side of the house.

I wouldn't advise crossing through here if the switch is moving like this.
