For the second time this month, the $650 million Las Vegas Monorail, which opened only two months ago, stopped service, this time indefinitely. The monorail, which has 6.3 miles of track with stops at seven hotel-casinos and the Las Vegas Convention Center, closed because of mechanical problems on Sept. 9, but officials waited until earlier this week to state that the troubles besetting the line are of a long-term nature.
