  • Walt's CP Railroad Barn Video Tour

    I wanted to share a hidden Disney Treasure. Just about everybody knows Walt had his own 1/8 scale Railroad in his backyard. What a lot of people don't know is Walt's Barn (where he stored his trains and controlled his layout) and several of his steam trains and a whole lot of personal artifacts are on display and open to the public in Griffith Park.

    It's 25 miles North of Disneyland straight up the 5 Freeway. It's open every third Sunday of each month from 11 am to 3 pm.

    For those who can't make that narrow window, I've shot a video tour and posted it on You Tube. The address is:

    It's part of my Disney Chief Magic Official Campaign.

    Keep spreading the magic! Because there's a little Fairy Godmother in all of us!

    All the best!

      I've been there ~ It's wonderful. I got the feeling that I was in a closer place to Walt Disney than in his apartment at the park. (I've been there too). Seeing the benches that Walt made by hand, the "hi-tech" switch map made for him, the invoice of work for the track and tressel, and even the paper towel holder just felt like I was peeking in on his personal stuff. I highly recommend visiting the barn, especially since it's free! The docents there are very knowlegable and you may run into Michael Broggie while you're there (that's great if you're a geek like me!). I could have stayed there all day asking questions and wandering through the incredible collection.
