    And right next to the train (behind the coal car) was the booth for the Carolwood-Pacific Historical Society. These are the folks responsible for maintaining and running Walt's train barn at Griffith Park (yes, his actual barn, moved from his home on Carolwood Dr.)

    By the way, there was an author signing going on that day with Michael Broggie, Roger Broggie's son. You may remember that the Broggies played a role in getting Walt into model railroading, and are therefore to be credited with playing a role in the eventual creation of Disneyland. The book, "Walt's Happy Place," (despite its unfortunate title for those of us with naughty, dirty minds) is a really cute book that is at once a children's book and a book for grownups about the significance of the barn and how it came to be moved to Griffith Park. It's about the size of an E-ticket magazine, has illustrations and children's book big print on one page, with a multi-paragraph grownup text on the facing pages.


    There was also a significantly nicer, bigger book on Walt and trains available for signing, but I just couldn't spend that much today (it was $70 for the red book, $10 for the yellow)




    Kooky, creepy, cute, whatever you call it, I nearly bought this shirt (but budget constraints... you know... Still, *I* like it.)



    I have a better picture of this display, but who can resist a funny butt shot?

    Goonie - Thanks for the great pics! WHERE was the Train Show? I really wanted to go but lost track of the dates. I think I may have driven past it today while dropping off my daughter this afternoon.

    localdisnyfan: it was at the Fullerton train station (near Spaghetti Factory) on Harbor between (the upper) Chapman and Orangethorpe.

    The vintage signals


















    The vehicles parked just outside the show entrance




    Okay, this technically wasn't at the Train Days show... it was at a Cinco De Mayo fair taking place just down the street. Look closely... that ride looks a LOT like Dumbo!




    The End.
