Here is the smell what sticks in my families head from our last monorail(Red) ride a few years ago. The sight of the CM at the TCC, who was waiting for us to get off after being stuck on the rail for nearly 4 hours with no AC or windows. When the doors opened, the smell hit her like a wave and she actually took a step back from the odor and the look on her face said it all. Oldest DD, still does not want to ride the monorail.

Nope, I've been alone in a car with one other person who I know didn't stink.

It's the monorail.

Smells like all those kids who fell asleep while watching "Wishes" and then peed their pants on their way back to the car.

Not a good smell to me, but everyone's olfactory systems are different!
Add me to the list of those who think it smells like band-aids.

Yes. But you did go to those Dead shows didn't you? VERY distinct smells ......
Over at our place, we're sure of just one thing: everybody in the world was once a child.

Maybe they clean the Monorail cars with Windex, which has ammonia in it and thus would smell like a leaky cat.

Good comparison. Now that I think about it I would have to agree.

It smells like baby diaper and BO , definitely has that poop and pee smell that lingers long after the monorail car has emptied. Over the years those smells just dig in deeper - imagine the walls in a smoker's house over 30 years...

Megsie, you cracked me up. Hilarious because it must be true.

I like that too. When no one is inside one car and you inhale the smell of the air conditioner.

OMG some of these responses are .

We call it the gag-o-rail. We have stayed at the GF and CR many times and have been on the monorail first thing in the morning and it still makes me gag and I don't even want to sit or touch anything.

OP I would love to smell that smell you are talking about when we get on the monorail, but it hasn't happened yet.

To me it smells like bandaids, and cheap fake leather.
