Is there a chance the track could bend?

Well, sir, there's nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car Monorail! So I found this news from Las Vegas a bit amusing:
When it debuted in mid-July, this city's sleek $650 million monorail was supposed to be the envy of the nation....But during a busy convention season, bits and pieces of the trains started falling off, potentially endangering anything below, and the system was shut down indefinitely for major repairs. By Thanksgiving, newspaper cartoonists and tourists alike were dubbing it "monofail" and deriding the futuristic cars sitting idle on the costly tracks.
