The loss of power resulted in the air-conditioning being shut down making it difficult for some passengers to breathe. Full report in NST.
And Down Under, Sydney is scrapping its monorail soon. There were red faces after passengers had to be rescued following a power cut.
But over in India, a Malaysian firm is involved in trial runs for a monorail system in Mumbai due to be commissioned in the middle of the year (See Indian Express).
