Yes, there are very few companies in the world currently marketing transit scale Alweg type monorails, and none of them are making trains that fit Disney's beam width. Disney needs to find someone willing to custom build the trains at a cost Disney can live with. Their options are severely limited.I would wager a lot of it has to do with fitting the train to the existing beams.....
I agree. Today's Disney is very bottom line focused, and they have a history of going after vendors who don't meet commitments. I expect they will incorporate into the contract some provisions that would be very painful if the supplier fails to deliver.I would say that Disney did their diligence and will have contract with whomever they have selected with a penalty clause for non performing.
