Any fan of Disney knows how much Walt loved trains. This exhibit invites guests to experience a more in-depth look at how trains influenced Walt’s life and work. The exhibit features “a wide variety of artifacts, firsthand accounts, archival videos, images of Walt and his trains, and one-of-a-kind items”. Guests will have the opportunity to view Walt’s Carolwood gondola railroad car and a model of Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. Also on display will be a model train created by the Napa Valley Wine Train in partnership with the Model Railroad Historical Society.
Michael Campbell, President Emeritus of the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society, built ‘Walt Disney’s Trains’ “to reflect Walt’s journey from his early years to the creation of Disneyland and beyond, and reminds us that, over a century later, Walt’s railroading influence remains a vibrant and relevant force”.
There are other fun surprises in the exhibit, such as an audio tour given by Bill Rogers — the one and only voice of Disneyland! Make sure to stop by the Museum Store on the way out to shop for some Disney train merchandise.
