Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: Disney's Carolwood Pacific Railroad
On May 7, 1950 Walt Disney ran the official first engine on the Carolwood Pacific Railroad - his backyard train at his Carolwood Drive home in Holmby Hills, California. The 2,615 feet of track includes a 46 foot long trestle and a 90 foot long tunnel under his wife Lillian's flower bed! Walt controlled the track from a special barn that acts as a central headquarters for the railroad's operations.
