    The name "Ward Tinkerbell" was spelled correctly. The spelling isn't the issue.

    It's the fact that they got the name of the locomotive Ward Kimball so totally, completely twisted!

    I mean, c'mon! The engine's name is plastered on the cab sides in gold leaf!

    EDIT: (on second thought, why do I have the sneaking suspicion that Ward himself may have had something to do with the goof from beyond the grave?)

    If you read the article, you will find that to be true.

    I was referring to the spelling of Holliday - a proper name - being 'corrected' by a spell checker and a human not questioning it.

    Interesting that they'll convert the steam trains to "greener" fuel, but Autopia still sits in Tomorrowland becoming more and more dated with its Chevron-provided gasoline.

    Where are the "greener" and obviously more "futuristic" fuels of Tomorrow?

    But with the Jungle Cruise boats, new fireworks launching technology, new gas-free Sub technology, and now the steam trains - good for Disney to be taking a more environmentally-friendly stance.

    Re: Disneyland Railroad on Bio-Diesel

    Sloppy, lazy journalism. The writer probably failed to write down the name of the engine, then forgot the name. He probably asked someone in the office: "Does anyone know the name of the new engine at Disneyland? It's Ward something with a couple of L's in it." Someone probably said, "Tinkerbell?" and he said, "Yeah, that sounds right. Thanks!"

    Google is so quick and easy.

    Perhaps his next story will be on Knott's Strawberry Farm.

    It's very rare that I laugh out loud at something I read.

    Thanks.

    Agree, I'd rather the trains be authentic but the autopia to be electric.

    But no on the horse poop smell in Frontierland. I've lived around horses, the smell is really not all that it's made out to be.

    Follow the horsedrawn streetcar around Main Street long enough if you want to see for yourself.

    I like the idea of DL going with more earth friendly fuels... next should be Autopia

    By the way, I was on the trains today and spoke with a CM about the Bio-diesel. He said that when the Mark Twain returns, it too will be running on Bio-diesel.

    What do the Tramzillas run on? Seems like they have the worst emissions of most engines at the DLR.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    The trams idle on diesel, and run on propane.

    Can't they do something more eco-friendly ?

    Like put pedals at every seat position.
