Monorail extension on hold (Las Vegas Review-Journal) - The Las Vegas Monorail won't carry passengers anytime soon, and the rail line's downtown extension is on hold until officials succeed in fixing problems that have bedeviled the new rail line. The $650 million, four-mile system has been closed since Wednesday, when a metal part connected to a drive shaft fell from a train. That was the third time this year debris has fallen off one of the trains. One official suggested the testing of the system might require its closure for weeks.
