    DRR C.K. Holliday at Fullerton this weekend! (Merged)

    While I had mentioned this in another thread about Cinco de Mayo, I thought it deserved its own thread:

    The C.K. Holliday, Disneyland Railroad engine No, 1, is all set to appear at Fullerton Station May 5th and 6th. You can climb into the cab, blow the whistle and ring the bell, and chat with train CMs. It's really a great opportunity to really get up close to the engine and check it out. The Kalamazoo handcar will also be on display. And best of all, it's all FREE!

    (Darkbeer or anyone else with a camera: Maybe you can get us some pictures of the move! I found that the parking structure at Fullerton provided a great vantage point last year when they moved the E.P. Ripley.)



    Here's an article from the OC Register. Note that the DRR actually has five locomotives (although one is currently in many pieces).

    So, if you're interested in getting a little closer to a true piece of Disney history, why not head out to Fullerton this weekend before heading to the park?

    This is definitely an event worth going to, I did it last year and had a great time! Be sure to check out the LEGO models!!!!!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Well Steve can't be there, but I'll take up to 52 pictures of the engine, which will probably satisfy you!

    Correct!

    Ironically, the E.P. Ripley, Engine No, 2, was completed and steamed up first. She was also the first engine to officially enter Main Street Station on July 17, 1955.

    C.K. Holliday Engine To Appear At Fullerton "Railroad Days" Event.

    The C.K. Holiday has resided at it's Disneyland home for 52 years. Now, it's set to leave the mother park for the first time ever. Seems like just yesterday that our beloved locomotive was just a little toot. Now it's all grown up...sniff. I'm so proud.

    The engine will appear over the weekend at the 9th annual Fullerton "Railroad Days" celebration. The famous locomotive will be accompanied at the DL Kalamazoo rail handcar. All locomotives at the park are now running cleaner on a new biodiesel fuel.

    Read more about all of this at the O.C. Register:

    Beatcha to it! But it's always great to get this event more exposure. Sometimes folks don't see the other announcements!

    I seem to recall one of the DLRR trains also being part of last year's event.

    The E.P. Ripley appeared last year, as I noted in my thread.

    I guess next year will mark the third year that Disneyland will participate in the event.
