The Fred Gurley went into service at Disneyland 56 years ago today. 2014 also marks the 120th anniversary of the Gurley's build date. The Fred Gurley is a 2-4-4 locomotive built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1894. Originally the Gurley was a 0-4-4 locomotive before Disney converted her to a 2-4-4 wheel arrangement. Before being acquired by Disney she was ran on a sugar plantation in Louisian  More...

That rock at the bottom of the waterfall looks just like Yoda. I'm not crazy. Taken inside the Grand Canyon Diorama on the Disneyland Railroad.
I think i see it. Is it like a half face and ear on the bottom middle?  - piratelife4me  648.3 #225 7:55PM
Exactly.  I know a lot of the railroad engineers think it looks like Yoda  - ckholliday  245.9 #1230 7:57PM

Glad to see for myself that the Ward Kimball 5 is out and running today. For the last two months the Kimball was undergoing repairs to fix broken parts. The Ward Kimball is a 2-4-4 locomotive built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1902 and went into service at Disneyland in 2005. The locomotive was named after Ward Kimball, an animator for Walt Disney and fellow train enthusiast. T  More...
Very cool post, I didn't realize his grandson works in the parks.  I'm not a huge train person in real life, but I love the Disney trains and hearing the history. - Sarafina  421.7 #431 3:22PM

Today I was asked by one of the engineers if I wanted to go up into the cab of the Fred Gurley. He told me he sees me riding the train every week and figured I had never been up there on this engine before. Most guests don't get to go inside the cab of the Fred Gurley because this engine does not have a tender seat for guests to ride on. He said the temperature inside the cab was over 140 degr  More...

I have never seen this before, a drawing of Walt Disney in the Jungle Cruise line. The drawing is on a post on the dock side after the turnstile. You have to lean over the railing and look down to see it. It was easier to see once on the boat. My friend who pointed it out to me said it change to different drawings of animals over time.
Sometimes it changes daily, just be aware. We use it kind of like a chalkboard. - IDVandalSkipperCM  1895.8 #58 8:28AM

Fun and full day at Disneyland with my brother and a friend. Today we were able to: ride in the Lilly Belle, ride in the front of the monorail, pilot the Mark Twain and tender rides on both the E P Ripley and Ernest S Marsh.

since OSHA forced the DLRR to fill water every lap with the "hose N' ladder". did you fill water on your cabrides on 2 and 4? it was impossible in the tower days - etaymarkman  4.2 #18065 7:21PM
They only took on water during my ride on 2, a third enigeer came out to do it. They don't take on water during every lap now, just more often because the water hose is slower than using the tower. - ckholliday  245.9 #1230 11:05PM

Best ride of the day so far, a tender ride on the Ernest S. Marsh with my sister. The engineer was a good friend of mine and the fireman and I had a funny connection. He retired from Edison and I just got a job there as an electrical engineer. One day I want to retire and work here as a railroad engineer.
Awesome. I have always wanted to ride one of the tenders. Disneyland is definitely on my list of jobs I would love to have. Disneyland is what inspired me to get into the engineering field. - junglecruise80  26.7 #5277 12:59PM
