Didnt that train hit a kid at some point too?I'm listening to a podcast about old disney things, i caught the first half this morning, will catch the 2nd on the way home.
The topic today is the old rail road at Disney Fort Wilderness Campground that only ran a few years. the reason being? They couldnt' keep it running.
they customer built the trains in California, didnt do any testing before they shipped them to FL. They tracks were laid by the same people that built the parks, and they bent the hell out of the tracks. once the trains got to FL, because they weren't tested in CA before being shipped, they had all sorts of problems, like not being able to hold enough fuel to get all the way around the loop.
An interesting listen so far.
Thanks for the tip, I hadn't been to that site. They have a good selection. I need to learn more about the current system components. I have an old American Flyer S scale set hiding in the attic (it works but not well).
We have this nearby, all the rooms are caboosesCome to my neck of the woods and stay IN a train car.
Scroll down the page for the pictures.
As soon as the dates are known for next year I'll be taking the boys, both are Thomas the Tank fans
