    Great stuff in Parts I and II, Steve -- can't wait for III! Well done!

      I was at Disneyland on Opening Day, and my mother tells a story from those days. We were getting aboard the train, but my mother refused, saying it was too hot, no shade, and Walt Disney heard her. The next time we came to Disneyland, the train seating area had shade.

        Maybe, maybe. The original Frontierland Station was built without platform covers. They were a later addition.

          I can't wait for part III. Perhaps Disney, ever desiring to be polically correct, will buy back the combine, paint it green and call it a hybrid!

            Very interesting in parts I and II. I now understand why he put that Railroad train in his parks.

                Thanks everyone.

                Look for Part 3 to run this coming Tuesday, Sept. 8th.

                Eaglman, those tickets you got on the Santa Fe are quite valuable as collectibles today!

                    Is Knott's getting rid of their old locomotive then? It's kind of funny what a convoluted, coast-to-coast deal that poor little engine went through just to end up moving a few miles down the road. At least it's found a good home... Knott's may be a shell of what it once was, but it's still one of the more authentic theme park representations of the Wild West. It's sad what happened to the combine car though!

                      The story of the "first" Ward Kimball steam locomotive is indeed a strange, convoluted one! Knott's is currently restoring the engine, and they plan to put it in service on the Ghost Town & Calico Ry.
