The Walt Disney World Railroad

IMG_2589-WDW-MK-railroad :) Walt Disney loved a good railroad. He built one in his backyard when he lived in California, and he built one that circles Disneyland in Anaheim. So naturally, when it came to building the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, that park had to have a railroad too. Walt bought some engines from a railway on the Yucatan penninsula in Mexico and brought them to Florida to be restored. They were made over to look very old fashioned, including the ability to run on steam. They were ready for the grand opening of the park in October 1971. The Walt Disney World railroad runs in a circle around the park. There are stops at Main Street USA, Frontierland and Mickey’s Toon Town. This sign is from the Main Street station.
