  • [Question] Calling all DLRR experts!

    Is there an official name to the train with the cars with forward facing seats (not the ones that face inwards towards the park)?

    Re: Calling all DLRR experts!

    The forward facing cars are the Excursion and the inward facing cars are called the Holidays

      I know someone on here will know the exact names, but I believe that each of the engines/trains has a unique name. For example the E.P. Ripley, H.K. Holiday, etc. (Apologies in advance if I spelled these wrong or anything). I know we have a couple of train experts on here who will be able to clear this up!

          Train sets:

          Cars with numbers in the 200 series, named "Holiday red," because of the color of the trim and awnings. This is the original freight train, which debuted in 1955 (although there have been significant modifications--such as adding seats!). The cars' numbers have changed over the years. Caboose is on this train;

          Cars with number in the 300 series, named the "Excursion" train. The seats face forward, and this train has the highest capacity--which is why it's nicknamed "the sponge." Cars originally numbered in the 600 series.

          Cars with numbers in the 400 series, named the Holiday Green, also because of the color of its awnings;

          Cars with numbers in the 500 series, named the Holiday Blue (see above). The Lilly Belle is usually carried behind this train, but can sometimes be seen on the Holiday Green as well.

          Engines:

          No. 1, C.K. Holliday, named for the founder of the Santa Fe Railway, has tender seat;

          No. 2, E.P. Ripley, named after the Santa Fe president who reorganized the railroad in the 1890s (Was originally to be named W.B. Strong); has tender seat;

          No. 3, Fred Gurley, named after the Santa Fe President in 1958;

          No. 4, Ernest S. Marsh, named after the railroad's COB in 1959; has tender seat (installed 2012);

          No. 5, Ward Kimball, named for Disney animator and railfan who influenced Walt.
