C.K. Holliday


The paintwork and brass are gleaming on locomotive #1 in this early (though undated) photo. I love the festive candy cane stripes on the light poles, and can only assume that the train is pulling in to Fantasyland Station (help, experts!). I am SO looking forward to taking my niece and nephew on the Disneyland RR for their first trip to the park next month, it was always one of my favorite attractions.

Since it does not look like Frontierland, Tomorrowland or Main Street, I would say Fantasyland. Enjoy your trip with your neice and nephew, those are always fun trips.

The folks at Burnsland.com could probably identify this one for you. Have a great trip with the family; seeing Disneyland through their eyes for the first time is like enjoying it all over again anew. Don't forget to take them to Jack Sparrow...oops, again...I mean Tom Sawyer's Island. And be sure to explain it, because you can only enjoy the island if you've read the books from cover to cover (end sarcasm here).

From Steve DeGaetano at Burnsland.com:

If you have a copy of "The Nickel Tour," you can see the same railing design in a shot of the station on page 49.

Thanks Dave, I do have a copy of that wonderful book, I'll check it out.

Thanks as always to matterhorn and perkypickle for your comments as well!
