The Ward Kimball: The Story of Disneyland Engine

From Plantation to Theme ParkFor Disneyland's 50th anniversary, the company had a great idea: add a fifth train to the Disneyland Railroad and name it after Ward Kimball, a Disney Legend and, like Walt himself, a railfan. This is the story of how a locomotive built in 1902 became part of the Happiest Place on Earth.The story begins not in a theme park but at a Louisiana plantation where a small locomotive called the Maud L. was first put to use over a century ago hauling cane sugar through the hot, humid fields. As the Maud L. ran down over the years, she was destined for scrap—but then her "life" took a change for the magical.Disneyland Railroad expert Steve DeGaetano tells the tale of how the Maud L. became the Ward Kimball:The early years of the engine destined for Disney, including its quiet decades at a theme park in OhioDisney's acquisition and rebuilding of the Maud L., and its rebranding into the Ward KimballThe inaugural run of the Kimball at Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebrationA fascinating look at how Disney tests, operates, and maintains its steam trainsPlus, an account of Walt Disney and Ward Kimball's lifelong friendship, a bond forged from animation, steam trains, and theme parksThe whistle blows.

Walt Disney's Railroad Story: The Small-Scale Fascination That Led to a Full-Scale Kingdom

Walt Disney's Railroad Story: The Small-Scale Fascination That

Thousands of books and articles have been written about Walt Disney and his organization, yet few people realize the significance railroading played in the evolution of the Disney empire. Encouraged by Walt's family and railfans inside and outside the Disney organization, Michael Broggie has chronicled the tale of Walt Disney's personal involvement in railroading. This book unveils the private realm of Disney railroading through hundreds of photographs, many of which have never before been made public, and interviews with Mrs. Walt Disney, Diane Disney Miller, Ward Kimball, Ollie Johnston, Bob Harpur, Bill Cottrell, Roger Broggie, Bill Evans, and many others. Walt Disney's love affair with trains began in his hometown of Marceline, Missouri. His first job was selling tobacco, candy, and newspapers on the Missouri Pacific line. By 1950, his enthusiasm for realistic model trains had evolved into an elaborate backyard live steam railroad. Walt's Carolwood Pacific Railroad included a 46-foot-long trestle, loops, overpasses, gradients, an elevated dirt berm, and a 90-foot tunnel underneath Mrs. Disney's flower bed! The complete history of the Disney railroads, from small scale models to steam trains for the Disney parks is covered. This is a book all Disney collectors and railroad ent...

From Plantation to Theme Park: The Story of

In June, 2005, Disneyland guests were treated to something not seen at the Park in over 40 years - a new steam locomotive, resplendent in red enamel and polished brass, began operating on the Park's main line to the delight of Disneyland Railroad fans everywhere. Built in 1902 and slated for a life of toil in the Louisiana sugar cane fields, the real-life "Little Engine That Could" now delights guests at Walt Disney's Original Magic Kingdom. The new locomotive, christened Ward Kimball after the famous Disney animator and rail fan may have been new to Disneyland, but its history spans more than a century. In his new book, Steve takes us along on a touching ride through time as he recounts the history of the little Baldwin first known as Maud L. That tiny plantation teakettle eventually became Disneyland Railroad No. 5, the first new Disneyland Railroad engine added to the fleet since 1959.
