Event and Product Information:
Few people are aware of the enormous part Walt Disney's love of railroading played in the development of the Disney theme parks. Yet, this passion followed the consummate showman from his humble beginnings in Illinois and Missouri through his enchantment with the small scale live steam hobby, evolving into the full-scale Disney Parks and their authentic steam powered trains. Indeed, Walt Disney's small-scale fascination led to a full-scale kingdom. Walt Disney's dream of a Magic Kingdom and his passion for railroading were as one. This synergy is succinctly described in his own words: "I just want it to look like nothing else in the world. And it should be surrounded by a train." Thus, we pay tribute to this enduing passion by offering an HO scale replica of the Lilly Belle closely art directed in each minute detail by Michael Broggie (son of famed Disney Legend & Pioneering Imagineer Roger Broggie).
The HO Scale Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific Railroad Bachmann Train Set will be offered for $150, plus tax. Train set includes six (6) train units (Engine, tender, three freight cars and a yellow caboose) and enough rail sections to create a 47" x 36" Oval Track, Power Pack w/Speed Control & Instruction Manual. A limited number of train sets will be available.
