The hidden sea serpent and mermaid at the end of Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. A small reference to the original Submarine voyage. Can be seen when the captain says "We'd better take her up before we have a run-in with a sea serpent or an encounter with a mermaid."

RAK and possible Trade! I'm looking to finish my Lion King puzzle set for my sisters birthday. I'm looking for Pumbaa and Banzai, pictured below. I have the top three pins for trade. If you can help me that would be great! I also have an extra Rafiki for the first person to find me. I'll be riding the train for a while. I'm currently in the first car on the train with blue stripes wear  More...

That Banzai pin must have been really limited. I'm also looking for that one and the non-Simba chaser. - SafariSkewerJessica  1631.6 #126 2:34PM
I ended up buying two more on my way out and I actually got Pumbaa and Banzai!  Now I just have to get my sister the Simba chaser and she will have the complete set.   - ckholliday  254.2 #1443 2:50PM
That sure was lucky! Where did you buy the 2 Boxes from? I have a Simba chaser hopefully I can trade it for the two I need :) - SafariSkewerJessica  1631.6 #126 2:56PM

Filling the E.P. Ripley with water while on a tender ride. Tender rides are a great way to learn more about the Disneyland Railroad. I found out that one of Fred Gurley's drive wheels broke off the axle a few days ago. Hopefully engine 3 will be repaired quickly and back on the rails soon.

Now if only we can get cars to run on water!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2835.9 #60 10:19PM

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  1099.6 #202 7:55PM
Exactly.  I know a lot of the railroad engineers think it looks like Yoda  - ckholliday  254.2 #1443 7:57PM
Very cool, thanks for pointing that out. Can't wait for a train ride to see it! - piratelife4me  1099.6 #202 8:40PM
I see it. It's a half of yoda head coming out of the water. kinda odd. I actually see a cat in the position of scratching on the back of a couch. LOL! - acdesigns  42.5 #5509 8:59PM

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...

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  2752.5 #63 8:28AM

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  254.2 #1443 11:05PM

The DLRR Ernest S Marsh and the Mark Twain Riverboat doing "shave and a haircut." You can hear the Marsh's new one chime whistle instead of her original three chime whistle. Hopefully they will be able to repair the original whistle.
