Monorail News, 25 December 2004

Las Vegas Monorail reopens (Las Vegas Review-Journal) - "After a lengthy shutdown, train officials expect 30,000 riders today and Sunday."

Vegas tries to get troubled monorail back on track (Chicago Tribune) - "When it opened in mid-July, this city's sleek $650 million monorail was supposed to be the envy of the nation, a high-tech public transit system paid for without taxpayer money that would be so popular it could even turn a profit. Then bits and pieces of the trains started falling off during a major convention season, and the thing had to be shut down Sept. 8 for major repairs. By Thanksgiving, newspaper cartoonists and tourists were dubbing it 'monofail.'"
