Train Station #8 -- March 15, 2009

Disneyland Railroad locomotive Number 2, the EP Ripley, built by Disney in 1955 for the opening of the park, pulls a train into New Orleans Square Station. The gingerbread-decorated building across the tracks was the original Frontierland Station. The structure has been moved three times. Guests now board from a plainer station to the left in the image. Thanks to Steve DeGaetano's book Welcome Aboard the Disneyland Railroad for the history of the station. I hope to review the book soon on my Park Trains page.
I took the photo in July, 2005.
It rained today.
