It’s a rare sight to see more than one Disneyland Railroad locomotive in front of the Main Street station at Disneyland park – let alone four. In case you’re wondering, these locomotives all have their own names and were introduced to the Disneyland Railroad between 1955, the year the park opened, and 1959. From left to right, you’ll see C.K. Holliday (1955), E.P. Ripley (1955), Fred Gurley (1958) and Ernest S. March (1959).
Paul Hiffmeyer, a regular contributor on the Disney Parks Blog, took this photo recently as part of a cast appreciation effort for engineers, operating engineers and conductors. Some cast members will receive this rare photo as a gift, but we thought some of the train lovers on the Disney Parks Blog might also be interested in taking a peek.
