You won't see this fellow in the ride anymore! Chinese workmen were certainly involved in mining back in the Gold Rush days, but this figure probably offended more than a few people over the years. Bud Hurlbut, designer and builder of the Calico Mine Train, can be partially seen in the cab of the train!
Different postcard, same scene...
I've always loved the thought of underground lakes, rivers and waterfalls! Maybe you would find tiny blind fish in the water. This waterfall is no mere trickle; the roar of the water was exciting, and the spray was welcome on a hot day.
Once more, from a different angle!
We're not done yet! More postcards from the Mine Train are coming.
