You see it on Main Street, U.S.A., every day at Disneyland park – the Fire Engine. It was added to the fleet of Main Street Vehicles 55 years ago today, on August 16, 1958. A replica of a 1916 fire engine, it is a reminder of simpler times at the turn of the century. It’s also a reminder of Walt Disney and how much he loved to drive it around Disneyland in the mornings before the park opened. So take a trip with us down the memory lane we call Main Street, U.S.A., today on the 55th anniversary of the Main Street Fire Engine. You’ll be glad you did.
