FIRE on the Monorail?

Sat Jul 21, 2012 5:27 pm

Just wondered if anyone knew anything.

At towers now and the monorail is closed. So before the nice walk
Back I decided to pop to the loo. A cleaner was telling me that there
Has been a small fire on the monorail. Don't know how true this is
But thought would post.

Oh dear! :(

I hope the fire cleans away! I have a wheelchair and I'm staying at the hotel, the woodland walk I think could be too far/muddy so I need the monorail.

I'm going there on Tuesday & Wednesday.

Considering the fact it's electrically powered, it might just have been a melted rail insulator setting alight some dust/rubbish, which happens a lot on real railways.

Either way, doesn't sound too good, hope everybody's ok.

All seemed to be ok there were no fire engines at the end of the day.

We wanted to go through the woodland walk but they told us the gates had been locked so had to use the shuttle busses
