Former Disney World monorail operators say series of failures likely led to crash

Posted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 9:51 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Former monorail employees interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel say three key people are involved whenever a train is being switched from one track to another: the pilot; a "monorail central" coordinator, who oversees the entire system from the Transportation and Ticket Center near the Magic Kingdom parking lot; and a worker in the monorail's maintenance bay, behind the Magic Kingdom, who activates track switches. Failed communication by any of them could have contributed to the accident.

Poor guy! He knew what was coming and according to this article he attempted to put the Monorail in reverse to avoid it. Hats off you you Austin! http://ping.fm/AOACE
