The monorail train is an icon to the Butlin's time line as we see it sat here showing off its glory. Given a fresh coat of paint, the Monorail train is placed on the location of the former track and was being shown to the guest staying here. A reproduced postcard photo is placed in the background as history is shown to all. The train did not stay for long but it was there for a time where I could see it show of its glory to all.
This is a view of the monorail train on the side, with my two sons in the photo. They loved this and the history related to the icon of Butlins. It was truly wonderful to see this here.
Unlike the one in Skegness, the seating in driving area has been made to look long and flat to allow photo opportunities. I do not believe it was like this on the original running train.
You also get to see one eldest son in the photo as we see the seating area of the Monorail train. The doors was missing on the train, which I believe to be how it was when it first started, please let me know if I am wrong there and I will change this. I know the door was on the train at one stage until the end.
Bourne have always been about showing off the pride in the name Butlin's and investing more into the brand we all love. As shown here, they have done a marvellous job of showing the history of Butlin's Minehead and the Monorail train.
I am hoping that we will see a return of this icon back into Butlins and to one day ride this stunning train once again.
The seating on this train is how I remembered it but the views were different as you had a great birds eye of the camp. Greatly missed by me and many others.
Static and awaiting, the ride shows off its beauty to all.
In memory of the Monorail train, greatly missed an d a strong icon of the Butlins name.
