    Steve looks at the Disneyland Railroad and its Post Office connections. Discuss it here!

    I love your articles Steve! Do you have a copy of the stamp from when Disneyland DID stamp letters with the official seal? That would be interesting to see.

      I may, daliseurat. I'll have to check the backs of the several postcards I have from the early days.

      Thanks for the kind words.

        Very interesting article! Now I have that song stuck in my head, and I don't know all of the words anymore.
        "Casey Jones!
        Chuggin' through the water!
        Casey Jones!
        Goin' through the mud.
        Casey Jones!
        Chug, chug, chug..."
        That's all I've got. I remember an Irish male voice singing. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say it was the same gentleman who voiced the March Hare in "Alice in Wonderland". But it's been a long time since I've seen that cartoon.
        Oo-de-lally!

          Jerry Colonna (1904 - 1986) was the Narrator. Google up "The Brave Engineer" short from 1950.

          And yes, he also was the voice of the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland.
