    One thing I would maybe do is reduce some of the vegitation growing around it.

    That attraction has already been replaced with a considerably good attraction. There is no reason it should return.

    Well, you obviously didn't read the original post.

    The thread is not about whether the defunct attraction Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland should be removed, it's about whether the "abandoned mine train accident" near Cascade Peak should be removed.

    Oh sorry, I misread the original post. Isn't it there to rot?

    This one also. You may note considerably more growth and deterioration than in the Yesterland.com photograph.

    'abandoned' doesn't mean it should be falling apart. Its still a show element.

    Aren't there other things to worry about at the park?

    Re: Should the Mine Train be removed.

    One of these days, that thing is just going to bust at the seams and fall apart since it seems to be pure wood. But until that happens I don't think they should mess with it. Although I do remember 20 years ago it looked almost brand new, just bent up a little bit. It has definitely rotted with age but I think that's kind of that point...you simply can't buy that kind of authenticity. No amount of theming is ever going to match what 25+ years has already done naturally. If it gets taken out now, all those years will have been wasted.

    And hey, I wouldn't begrudge them opening the attraction up again. It'd require a lot of Thunder Mountain destruction and no more paths through Frontierland, but with today's technology and the mature landscape of Disneyland the Mine Train ride could look fantastic. It'll never happen of course, but it just doesn't seem right to have all that wasted space today from such an enormous ride.

    Incidentally, I wouldn't let Jay Rasulo hear of this. Once he finds out there's an abandoned mine train in one of the "Disney parks" he might be tempted to either remove it or somehow cash in on it. He's good at removing things and making money off of nothing, but not much more unfortunately.

    Re: Should the Mine Train be removed.

    I really wish they'd get the prarie dogs working again. It was always so cool to see those popping up and down when riding the mark twain. I was out on TSI a few weeks ago and the whole area visible from TSI is a total wreck. Fix it up a bit, but don't lose the old look.

    Re: Should the Mine Train be removed.

    Although there may be other things to worry about at the park (There will always be other things to worry about, believe me), Walt Jr. asks a great question that has not been given its due here. As illustrated by DippityDawg, the abandoned Mine Train does need refurbishment. Notice the plywood bits falling off the roof and the cracking paint. The weather is a harsh friend indeed! In order for the storied attraction to represent in Frontierland, this train needs some attention! I loved the Mine Train and still do. I want to see it last for another 20 years and in order for it to do that, DL needs to send a small team out there and halt the destruction that the elements are causing to it. As everyone has said, it doesn't need to look new, but we shouldn't let it rot either.

    It appears to me that the area around the burning cabin has been cleaned up and plussed. It no longer burns, but there are two lanterns now and the area has been worked over. I was shocked to see how good it looked just last weekend while riding the train. Check it out Pat.
