Disneyland's new monorail glass changes color in sunlight

ANAHEIM, Calif.—Disneyland has updated its classic monorail train meandering through the amusement park, adding a better seating arrangement and glass that changes color in the sunlight.

The new Monorail Red, or Mark VII, train debuts Friday.

Monorail lead designer says Disneyland is "always looking for ways to update and refresh classic attractions."

The first electric monorail cars have blue glass and red stripes that change color in the sunlight. The next two cars are blue with purple glass and orange with blue glass.

Visitors will now have a better view from bench seats facing the windows.

The Disneyland monorail started in 1959.
