Disneyland Railroad, July 1960

Locomotive #1, the "C.K.Holliday", awaits at Frontierland Station in this great vintage photo. For a time, the freight train only stopped at this station, while the passenger train stopped at Main Street Station. You can see the siding where one train could pass the other.


The C.K. Holliday and the E.P. Ripley (the Disneyland Railroad's first two locomotives) were built on the Disney Studio lot, looking 100 years old even though they were brand new. I like the fact that engines 1 and 2 have a direct link to Walt's original miniature railroad, the "Carolwood Pacific", which ran around his backyard.

Great, rare shots. The Frontierland Train depot is largely forgotten.
