Mine Train, July 1956

I love the way the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train looked with its dark-green paint scheme. Just see how this one gleams! It was brand new, the ride debuted around the time this photo was taken. I believe that the li'l locomotives that took guests through Nature's Wonderland operated via electric motors (or rubber-band power), but they sure look like steam-driven trains.


Don't you wish that you could take one more ride through that tunnel? Bear country, Beaver Valley, the Living Desert, and especially Rainbow Caverns! I had originally hoped that I would be able to merge these two photos into a single large image, but the perspective was just too different and the tracks would never line up.

You can take one more ride through that tunnel, if you're willing to close your eyes and listen...
