    Dlrr ?

    Are they going to update the naration on the DLRR to reflect the fact that there are 5 trains now instead of 4?

    I like the traditional voice, but I would be nice to have updated information and the same voice throughout the entire trip around Disneyland.

    No. 5 is Ward Kimball

    Yup another train is supposed to be added to the collection. The new engine is from a private collector and it's being completely refurbised. The engine will be named Ward Kimall, after Disney animator and railfan. The headlamp will feature Ward's paintings of Jiminy Cricket, the character he created and animated in Pinocchio.

    No. 1 C.K. Holliday
    No. 2 E.P. Ripley
    No. 3 Fred Gurley
    No. 4 Ernest S. Marsh
    No. 5 Ward Kimball

    I agree and also like the current voice. Sometimes it's nice (especially when going into Toon Town) to get information on shows (like Snow White) or parades when they are going to happen soon.

    its Thurl Ravenscroft and he is still alive so it would be great if they could get him to re-record the narration.

    I hope the next train will be a tribute to Ollie Johnston (another RR enthusist).

    I'm really glad that they're naming the fifth for Ward. He was one of the last remaining greats of his time. We need more people like him in the company. I think that as long as they keep "the voice" an update would be nice. And I hope that they can get the WK on the tracks by the 50th.
    You would think that being in New York for eight months out of the year would be cool...not when the closest thing you have to Disneyland is the World of Disney Store on Madison.

    I know I'm stepping in a little late here, but I just wanted to clarify that there will still be four trains (sets of cars). But there will be five locomotives.

    I also saw a train being tested yesterday (I don't know which one) but it just had one passenger car with workers and the engine. It was bizarre seeing the train blow right through the Mainstreet station without stopping...

    According to Disneyland RR Guy..they ran 2 trains today...testing the block lights!!
    'When hinges creek in doorless chambers..and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls..whenever candlelights flicker..where the air is deathly still..That is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.'
