        So pretty!
        Good morning, son
        In twenty years from now
        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
        And I can tell you 'bout today
        And how I picked you up and everything changed
        It was pain
        Sunny days and rain
        I knew you'd feel the same things...

            FYI the last few pics (the train with the Yellow Caboose) is not the ward Kimball at all, but the Marie E. Pixar's John Lasseter purchased it from Ollie Johnson (one of Walt's Original 9 Old Men) last week and hosted a special event where it was ran around the Disneyland track several times.

                  I've ALWAYS wanted accurate model trains of the Disneyland Railroad. What would be required for something like that to happen? I'm sure there are many, many of us who would love these.

                    Let me assure you, speedescout, you are definitely NOT alone. Unfortunately, the costs associated with making completely accurate models is prohibitive. In the meantime, we will have to accept models made from a manufacturer's stock models, like the N-scale E.P. Ripley coming soon which is based on Bachmann's stock model of UP 119, with a diferent paint job.

                    If you model large scale, things are looking better. Next year, plans are to release a G scale C.K. Holliday. While the model will be based on Hartland Model's stock 4-4-0, the proportions of that engine are far closer to the real thing, and it's hoped custom detail parts will be made. (this year, they're working on a gorgeous version of WDW RR No. 1, Walter E. Disney). After that, we can hope for a E.P. Ripley as well.

                    If you have the bucks, you can buy the current LGB 2-4-4 Forney, which as been semi-accurately painted into a version of the Fred Gurely. Since this engine, again, is a stock model, significant differences between the real engine and the model exist. Significant differences.

                      I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair, then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserved them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe........
