World of Color -‘Yensid Valley II’
This release, #5, was shipped JULY 2020.
This is the fifth release in the train set “World of Color”.
Release #5 is ‘YENSID VALLEY’. This is what Walt called his back yard, where his ‘Carolwood Pacific’ railroad existed. (Yensid is Disney backwards.) We all need a place to escape, reflect, and play. He set a wonderful example!
This observation car comes complete with photo etch platform railing as shown here. (Hidden Mickeys) Completely produced in the USA. The II (2) indicates this has the same name as a previous release but is different in several ways including body style and pink trim color.
These cars represents an artist’s view of what Walt Disney’s personal real train might have looked like. Each Carolwood Pacific car is named for a place that was important to him. This classic train is meant be a brilliant symbol of the colorful artistry of Walt Disney.
This ten car set will also include a mural car and locomotive, all planned to be produced at about six month intervals.
A portion of the proceeds of this series will benefit the Carolwood Foundation, operators of Walt’s Barn in Griffith Park California.
