Choo Choo, 1957

I found a few nice Disneyland slides in a group marked "Trip to Mexico, 1957". I guess somebody made a detour or two before they headed south of the border!

I love this shot of the C.K. Holliday as it approaches Main Street Station, with the warm late-afternoon sunlight casting long shadows.

It's too bad this one is so dark, because it would be a great photo of the old yellow passenger cars. The craftsmanship on these is top-notch, it's easy to believe that they are 100 years old, instead of 2 years old (and 5/8 scale).

Isn't it a beautiful sight? They wonder why peeps don't ride the train as much. Imagine riding that charming train to Mexico. Maybe that's what those peeps were thinking. :)

nice photos; the second one has especially rich colors with the sunshine streaming in
