• Added new sensors to all monorail switches and the spur line.[/QUOTE]
I find this curious that they were able to plan, acquire, and install new sensors so quickly after the accident. Or to quote someone else “curiouser and curiouser”.
• Require Monorail Pilots to drive forward through the switch from the EPCOT loop to the Magic Kingdom express loop. This requires moving from the forward cab to the back cab in the EPCOT station and then backing out until they’ve passed the switch.
I would have changed this long ago. In fact, if it were up to me, I’d have had both cockpits occupied every time a train was beam switching and running in reverse. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t even run a train in the wrong direction on any beam for more than one station and certainly not all the way from TTC to the MK station.
• Monorail Control Coordinator is no longer allowed to leave the monorail station area without having a qualified replacement taking that position. It’s unclear if they’re also required to stay in the tower when trains are switching beams.
This should have been SOP all along, ESPECIALLY DURING SWITCHING OPERATIONS.
By the way, here’s an eerie picture from April (the next to last time I rode up front). I’m pretty sure this is Purple.
