Judge side-tracks Vegas Monorail Bankruptcy plan

The Las Vegas monorail has had its bankruptcy plans side-tracked when the plans were not approved by Judge Bruce Markell.  Judge Markell expressed concerns and has been quoted the following:

“Its current plan dooms it to failure, if not in the next few years, certainly by 2019,” 

The monorail project is trying to connect additional segments to its operations to secure additional funding for the proposed extension line to McCarran airport.  The Sahara Hotel Station, the Project Linq behind Harrahs, are all part of its plan to emerge out of bankruptcy.

Here is the link to monorail video from (2008).  The interesting part is around 2:23 showcasing the McCarren Airport expansion (rendering included in the video.)
