December 20, 2007 – The First Mark VII Monorail Train Arrives in Disneyland
“Ride the historic, high-speed zero-emission transportation system that rockets along a single rain through the Disneyland Resort.”
On December 20, 2007, the first Mark VII train arrived at Disneyland as part of the refurbishment of the monorail from Mark V to Mark VII. The trains had to follow a specific numbering system, with the Mark VI trains being used on the Walt Disney World monorail system. This new Mark VII train was red in color and nicknamed Monorail Red. The train would not begin operating until July 2008, due to issues in design and specific changes. There are three colors in the Mark VII fleet: Red, Blue, and Orange.
