Powder shines along the rails above the Sin City Strip

To make a station on the new Las Vegas Monorail stand out in a city that shines and glows as brightly as the rings upon the gifted fingers of the late, great Liberace, a finisher uses powder to prove once again that all that glitters is not gold.

Las Vegas, the fast-paced, glitzy gaming oasis, needs to get people from point A to point B in a New York minute. A high-stakes player stuck in the traffic snarl that sometimes strangles the Strip might be leaving a seat at a $1,000-a-hand blackjack table at the Bellagio colder than the pure oxygen air conditioning that pumps throughout the casino's atmosphere. To this end, the city has erected the Las Vegas Monorail, a driverless, urban public transportation system that glides above street traffic at speeds reaching 50 miles per hour. The system operates on a 4-mile route on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip, connecting eight resorts and the convention center. Located at the intersection of Paradise and Desert Inn in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center, lies the monorail station that is sponsored by Nextel and gleams like a mirror ball under the desert sun. It shines so brightly because of its powder-coated finish.
