Not too clear that these were very different systems[edit]

The two minirail systems were quite different and not compatible. From the article, it sounds like the smaller Yellow system had larger cars - 60 passenger trains vs 12 passenger cars on the Blue. However, the 12 passenger cars were strung into trains with much larger net capacity than the Yellow. Does anyone know the actual length of the Blue trains in number of cars or the total capacity of an entire Blue train? When I attended Expo 67, I thought of the Yellow line as a "toy" train compared to the Blue. 99.245.248.91 (talk) 20:34, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Equipment/Yellow[edit]

"The Yellow Minirails received their nicknames from the colour of the cars’ canopies"
=> What nickname?
"Also designed by Habegger"
=> Like what?
"ran on a pair of outward-facing 3 1⁄2-inch (89 mm) × 12-inch (305 mm) “C” channels, 4 9⁄16 inches (116 mm) apart and supported on A-frames."
=> This is hardly understandable. A drawing or a photo is needed.
