Years ago, I shared some of my vintage tickets on the Vintage Disneyland Tickets blog (where else?) - one of my favorite Disneyland blogs, which has now gone the way of the dodo. Anyway, I figured that I could certainly share those same tickets here without too many complaints.
Both of today's tickets are for the Santa Fe & Disneyland R.R., and are quite scarce, especially in this never-used condition. Notice the "conductor's check" at the far right - this is the part that was usually torn off by the ticket taker.
Mr. Vintage Disneyland Tickets estimated that these are from 1957, and who am I to argue? Each ticket stub lists only three depots - Main Street, Frontierland, and Fantasyland. No Tomorrowland Depot, which opened in 1958. Love that "Globe" watermark!
Here is a pink version - both tickets are for adult riders, so I'm not sure if the color had any significance. Other than the hue (and the serial number) they are essentially identical. I still remember when these were offered to me - - I was not going to buy them; a good friend of mine told me that I would be crazy to pass them up. He was right!
I have a few additional DLRR tickets to share in a future post.
