We continue our tour northward along the soon-to-be VERY famous Las Vegas Monorail.
Now THIS is exciting! Monorail testing has expanded much further south. This is Sands Avenue.
The Las Vegas Convention Center Station has a different look to it, more squarish.
The well-publicized Monster Drink train makes a stop over Desert Inn Road. The station straddles the roadway.
I think we'll be seeing a lot of this train.
The Las Vegas Hilton Station is right next to their Star Trek Experience and a very short walk to the hotel lobby.
Another view of Las Vegas Hilton Station.
At the end of the line is Sahara Station, and as you can see here the lights are working!
Workers install the automated doors.
Sahara Station...it's so bright and shiney!
