Daily Photo Tour - Fill'er Up

There's something really exciting about the Disneyland Railroad. It's hard to put a finger on just one thing, however, because there are so many things that make it what it is. You have the friendly wave from the engineers as they drive the train from station to station. The shout of "All aboard!" from the conductors. The grand circle tour of Walt's original Magic Kingdom. The feeling of adventure as you pass through trees and tunnels. The nostalgia and wonder of being transported by locomotives around a century old. It's amazing to think that these quiet, steady steel horses were once the cutting edge of getting places. We are working on a special Disneyland Railroad project and have really fallen in love and gained a new appreciation for this attraction and the people who maintain it. Seen in this picture is an engineer filling up the water tank at the New Orleans Square Station.

Woo-hoo! Special train project! Sounds awesome, I cannot wait. BTW, love your previous photos of the Lily Belle. Almost better than being there. There is a rosy, romantic, better than real life quality to the one taken inside her that I love but cannot really explain.
