Disneyland Engineers Celebrate the Return of the Much-loved Disneyland Railroad

Disneyland Railroad

After a lengthy refurbishment, the Disneyland Railroad is back in business and ready to whisk riders around Disneyland theme park.  Disney fans both young and old have been anxiously awaiting the return of this iconic attraction and to experience firsthand the new updates along Rivers of America and the waterfront.

There are also a few Disney Cast Members who have cause to celebrate – the engineers who care for these historic steam engines.  Their work is pivotal  in keeping Walt’s vision and his love of trains alive and well at Disneyland today.  According to Robert Rodriguez, one of the engineers, “Any way we as a cast can inspire the guests to have a passion for these trains like Walt did is fantastic.”

Both Robert and fellow Cast Member Craig Ludwick have been working hard the past few months to prepare the Disneyland Railroad to return to it’s 365 day a year operating schedule.  Both are pleased that it is back and better than ever with recent additions that include a new trestle bridge that extends out along the Rivers of America.   Craig had this to say about the updated experience,  “Once our guests see those new waterfalls, lighting and the amazing stone work … you’re going to hear people say, ‘Oh, wow! Look at that!’”

According to Craig, other highlights of the refurbishments include new breathtaking views of Walt Disney’s Dioramas of the Grand Canyon and the Primeval World which have been carefully restored.
