    It clearly shows the sidings and you can make out the Frontierland
    station on the "inside"
    Thanks! I love these old aerial photos. Very different park back then.

    Timon, the passing siding was re-installed following the station's last move in 1962. However, by that late date, the original operating scheme to have train pass one another had been discontinued for many years, meaning the siding was unused. So it appears that placing the station that far back may have been just for aesthetic purposes.

    The siding was not there prior to Splash's construction. I suspect it was removed sometime in the 1960s--but that's just a guess for the time being.
