    Ward Kimball/Lilly Belle Ceremony

    Just got home from the ceremony to dedicate the Ward Kimball and rededicate the Lilly Belle.

    At 8:09am the Ward Kimball pulled into New Orleans Station pulling one excursion car and the Lilly Belle. In the excursion car were Matt and a load of the roundhouse crew along with a couple of VIP's. Matt gave a speech followed by a short speech by the son of Ward Kimball. Also present was Ward Kimball's wife. The roundhouse crew then posed for pictures in front of the locomotive while a Dixieland band entertained. Then everyone was allowed to walk through the Lilly Belle ( I even got to exchange a few words with Matt before he had to go do a spot for Cast TV). Everyone exiting the Lilly Belle was given a Ward Kimball locomotive trading card and a special Lilly Belle rededication ticket dated for today with a brief history of the car on the back.....VERY COOL.

    Matt was also given an award by the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society.

    All said, it was worth staying a couple hours past my shift.

    Wow, I'll be over at the park by 1 today...wonder if the freebies are an all-day thing or just for the ceremony. Guess my Dad will be happy as there's an excuse for him to ride the train.

    The ceremony was not for the public and the freebies were Cast Exclusives....the trading card matches the set we were given for the 50th.
