PHOTOS: First New Type C Monorail Spotted Testing on Tokyo Disney Resort Line
While the Tokyo Disney Resort theme parks remain closed through at least mid-May due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, operations on other segments, such as the Disney Resort Line monorail system, continue. And in preparation for the launch of the new Type C monorail trains this year, the Oriental Land Company has taken advantage of the reduced schedule on the Disney Resort Line to test the first new train!
Twitter user @peenattsun was at Tokyo DisneySea Station today when he spotted the Type C train testing during operating hours! Previous tests only took place in the late night after hours. Inside, we can see the new Mickey-inspired interior, complete with larger windows. Below, you can view the concept renderings for these new trains.
The Type C trains are scheduled to enter service sometime in 2020. They were previously scheduled for May 21st, but have since been delayed due to the ongoing disruptions related to COVID-19.
