Besides the LALS displays, Monty the Monorail will be accompanied at the museum by an old friend – Disney Legend Bob Gurr, who helped design the vehicle that once operated as part of the Walt Disney World Monorail fleet in Orlando. Monty’s new owner has been touring the country with this piece of Disney history; stopping at the LA Live Steamers property is a big opportunity for Southern California Disney fans to see Monty up close and meet Bob Gurr!
Monty the Monorail is too large to take through the gate into the LA Live Steamers property, so it will be displayed in the parking lot outside, and a large tent will be set up to provide shade for Bob Gurr and Monty’s owner, so that they can mingle with guests in the shade. Guests likely will not be able to access the Monorail while it is on display.
The Disney Barn, LA Live Steamers and Monty the Monorail will be available to the public beginning at 11:00 A.M.
The Disney Barn at Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum is located at 5202 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, California 90027; this is inside Griffith Park, near the 134/5 Freeways split.
