    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)?

    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.

    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!
