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.

  1. How cool would that be to have a mini-train in your backyard?!

  2. I can't even imagine! I'm excited to see one of the box cars at the Disney Family Museum in August... shame we can't ride on it!
