New Permits Filed for Electrical Work on Walt Disney World Railroad Stations. Excitement about the Walt Disney World Railroad taking on passengers again is at an all-time high. The steam locomotives are tested daily going around Disney’s Magic Kingdom. We have witnessed Cast Members training to get guests on and off the train at each of the three Train Stations.
Unfortunately, it looks like time has taken its toll on the stations themselves, and this may delay the reopening a few extra days. Two permits have been filed locally with the Orange County Comptrollers one to Provide, labor, material, and/or electrical for construction, and the other is for Electrical work. Seems like the stations just need a little work.
This is not a huge deal overall, but this may push the opening back slightly. Rumors were we would see the train return over the Christmas Holiday, and now we know this will not happen.
Electrical Work on Walt Disney World Railroad Stations
Listen to the clamor of the engine, the chug of the wheels and the call of the whistle as you travel aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Take your seat on 1 of 4 meticulously restored, vintage narrow-gauge steam trains—originally built between 1916 and 1928—and enjoy a relaxing 20-minute, 1.5-mile scenic round-trip tour.
It’s a convenient—and nostalgic—way to get around Magic Kingdom park!
