Here are a few nice ones from good ol' Frontierland, circa 1960.
The long-gone Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland was a wonderful attraction that (apparently) outlived its popularity. Would guests eventually appreciate the unique charms of this massive, detailed experience? We'll never know! Those Imagineers came up with so many fantastic touches, like being able to go beneath a waterfall; the entire ride really was very much like a train version of the Jungle Cruise in many respects.
Not far away, the Pack Mules were packin' them in. Kids mostly, by the look of it. Cast members wore white hats so that you knew they were good guys.
