    Oh yeah I think on the spur side on the unload side there is a box that says Jopin Iron works or Joplin something or other He is on this board and I hope he reads this. Why did you move from sunny Southern California to Jopin Missouri?

    Probably the same reason lots of us left: He could probably get a 3,000 square foot house on a golf course for about the same price as you can get a 1,500 sq. ft house on Victory Blvd. in the Valley built in 1953.

    Re: Do you know the secrets to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad?

    The last time I went on Thunder, we got sat in row 3 on the north side. It was the middle of the day and it was slow, so all the CMs were bored and really talkative with all the guests. A little boy in front of us asked one of them about the gigantic bell hanging right there in front of the ride's control booth. Eventually, the CM went up to the control board, flipped a switch and the little hammer started swinging around and let me tell you, that thing is loud! So if you're near the front of the train, ask the CM real nice and they might ring the bell for you!

    Re: Do you know the secrets to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad?

    From what I have heard, yeah you could once view the trains from the backside of Big Thunder Trail. And the big toe was put there for an Imagineer who broke his toe during construction.

    Re: Do you know the secrets to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad?

    Can someone post pics of all the remains of Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland with notes. I know the town used to be Rainbow Ridge and the tunnel in the pond but don't know it was from Beaver Valley or Bear Country.

    Hi mondo, you may wish to check out the following thread. I was interested in something similar and there's a diagram that shows what's still there (though it's a bit hard to read unless you zoom in). You might find some helpful information here. Next time I go to the park I intend to take pictures of all that remains and make a diagram showing what was where and what's there now.
