Amazing limited production model trains.

Disney’s Most Colorful Train on Rails!

What if Walt Disney had a train?  Well, he did!  You probably know the story of Walt’s live steam train in his backyard.  The Carolwood Pacific, named for the street he lived on, was famous and is well loved today.  You can see the consist including the famous 4-4-0 Lilly Belle at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, but did you know he also personally owned the trains at his Disneyland Park?  He created W.E.D. (his initials) as a company for licensing and also to maintain control of his railroad at the park.

In building Disneyland, Walt had many sponsors to help fund his dream and naturally turned to the Santa Fe Railroad to help sponsor the train around Disneyland, called the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad.  It was Walt’s joy to run his own train whenever he wanted to.

What if Walt had his own train to ride the ‘mainlines’ of America’s railroads?  Liberties have been taken, with permission, to create this rendition of what Walt’s train could have been as cars named for places important to Walt, and with a color scheme showing the ‘wide world of color’ (then the name of his television show on NBC), but also reflecting the palate and talents of his studio.


This is a much anticipated new N scale train series produced here in the United States. As shown, there will be eight cars named for ‘towns and places’ dear to Walt’s heart.  A mural car, express car, and a locomotive will also be produced to complete the train.  I am sure you will enjoy this, the most colorful train ever on rails.
