Well, the actual running gear and suspensions could be re engineered from existing parts as much as anything else. I believe that the new monorails at Disneyland aren’t really new, but simply “new”. The way I understand it is they basically rebuilt the existing trains, one at a time. They are all new construction bodies, but those are pretty much shells. Again, the guts are reused and improved.
But, a lot also depends on how much of the remaining crash train parts can be recycled and how much would be replaced anyway.
(I’m guessing that the two end cars were total write offs, while the mid train cars are all OK).
