Yes I am a Disneyland geek. I love the park. I go about 3-4 times a month. And I like to notice the little things.
Awhile ago I was eating at Rancho de Zocale with my Dad. We both love Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. We watched the trains come and go. I like to notice the names of the engines. I had previously written a bunch of them down while waiting to ride but had missed some. This time we got to see the engines go by many times and I filled in the blanks of my list. Here are all the engines and their numbers:
#1 I B HEARTY
#2 I M BRAVE
#3 I M FEARLESS
#4 U B BOLD
#5 U R DARING
#6 U R COURAGEOUS
#7 I M LOCO
This past week after we rode BTMRR I asked the CM working the attraction about the engines. He told me #2 is the one from the accident. He said it will be retired until 2010 because that year the youngest rider that was on that train will be 18. I thought that was interesting. The #6 engine is the one that replaced the #2.
So, watch for the engine names when you are nearby or waiting to ride. It's fun :-)
