I use the best parts I can find and install them with care. I have been modifying model monorails since the first (red) came out over 14 years ago.

As of April 2017 I am concentrating on the following services:

HO Scale

Autonomous - $220, a lower cost alternative to radio control - an onboard microcontroller detects magnets underneath the beam which instruct the monorail to: accelerate; decelerate; stop; wait; lights on/off; reverse direction; play a message...Fully automatic operation ! Includes white LED headlights and red (or yellow or green) flashing roof light.

- Upgraded motor for autonomous with original drive system - $25

Radio Control - $400 for base installation (including a transmitter with inertia control and four function buttons) as long as your monorail is in good running condition. Includes upgraded motor, white LED headlights and red (or yellow or green) flashing roof light.

WhisperJet - $80 uninstalled (without motor), $120 uninstalled with motor - includes chassis, pulleys, drive wheel, belts (and spares) - tested - currently fits Walt Disney World and Disneyland Mark V models only, Disneyland Mark VII in development - ***requires modification to lower shell for installation***

WhisperJet - $160 installed - includes lower shell modification, chassis, upgrade motor, pulleys, drive wheel, belts (and spares) - tested

WhisperJet Disneyland Mark VII - $190 installed - since the Mark VII electronics will not support a faster motor the WhisperJet package includes an upgraded motor driver.

Speed - $60 - install faster motor, includes upgraded carbon brushes.

Lighting - $60 - install voltage converter and white LED headlights. (or do it yourself, see how here:)

Enhanced Sound - $150 including installation - includes sound board, amplifier, improved speaker, voltage converter, programming sound clips (up to 10 play in sequence or random, including "por favor...") - currently fits Walt Disney World and Disneyland Mark V models only, Disneyland Mark VII in development - also works as an option for radio control - requires slight modification to upper and lower shells

*** I am not building "The Works" monorails for now because of time constraints. These projects take a long time due to the many wires that have to be run. Once I get caught up with things I plan to start building them again.

"The Works" - radio control; WhisperJet; enhanced sound - $585 ($70 savings). Doesn't matter if your monorail runs or not, we replace the motor, gearbox, sound board, lights...

or "The Automatic Works" - "The Works" - autonomous; WhisperJet; enhanced sound - $450 ($50 savings). Doesn't matter if your monorail runs or not, we replace the motor, gearbox, sound board, lights...

 

N Scale:

Four car radio control train with WDW Mark IV shells - $800

- includes: Powered cab with headlight and flashing beacon; two cars; unpowered cab with warning lights

- rechargeable batteries for powered and unpowered cabs; battery charger

- radio transmitter (joystick style, rotary control style is $60 option)

Beam - $160 for a 30" x 72" oval (not a true oval, 4" straight section between the 13" radius curves)

- can be a true oval with 15" radius curves if preferred

- other layout designs are available, 13" radius is the minimum, send me your layout plans and we will discuss them.

- prices include return shipping (USPS Priority Mail with appropriate insurance)

 

Future Services in testing:

Beam Switch

Rear cab lighting - flashing roof light and rear warning lights - requires a battery in the rear cab

Scale Beam - rectangular beam like the real one, 8 mm wide x 16 mm high - requires WhisperJet drivetrain for the monorail.

WhisperJet Mark VII - since the Mark VII electronics will not support a faster motor the WhisperJet package includes an upgraded motor driver
