I agree..they look a little gaudy. Can you imagine how many people are going to wait in line just to ride on the golden one?
Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
As far as a gold train, I went to the Chip and Dale Pin event on the 3rd (yes, Im a pin freak), they had a ton of concept art for pins coming out for the 50th (I believe someone counted over 400 but thats another story). Anyways, they will have a series of Pins of the Golden Ride Vechicles. They had a pin of Mickey in a gold Engine which looked really nice. Then when I started asking about more info about those, he told me that they were planning on painting the engine gold but about 2 weeks before that point (so about 3 weeks now), they changed their mind about the engine so there wont be a gold engine. He told me that they were still trying to figure out what to do with the Disneyland Railroad but havent made a decision yet that he knew of. This info was coming from the guy resposonable for auctally ordering the pins to be made.
I cant remeber all the others I saw but besides the ones pictured above, I defently remeber seeing a golden Jungle Cruise boat and I think a Casey Jr one too.
Interesting thing to point out, is I thought the gold was for Opening Day attractions. Dumbo Opened about a month after opening on Augest 16, 1955 and Casey Jr opened about 2 weeks late.
