Walt Disney Railroad Book Autographed by the Author  

 Click any image for a better view
Encouraged by Walt's family and rail fans inside and outside the Disney organization, Michael Broggie has chronicled the tale of Walt Disney's personal involvement in railroading. And Michael Broggie should know-- his father Roger helped build Walt's backyard and Disneyland Railroads, and Michael himself "rode the rails" with Walt Disney. As an added bonus, Michael Broggie has personally autographed this book.

This book unveils the private realm of Disney railroading through hundreds of photographs, many of which have never before been made public, and interviews with Mrs. Walt Disney, Diane Disney Miller, Ward Kimball, Ollie Johnston, Bob Harpur, Bill Cottrell, Roger Broggie, Bill Evans, and many others.

Walt Disney's love affair with trains began in his hometown of Marceline, Missouri. His first job was selling tobacco, candy, and newspapers on the Missouri Pacific line. By 1950, his enthusiasm for realistic model trains had evolved into an elaborate backyard live steam railroad. Walt's Carolwood Pacific Railroad included a 46-foot-long trestle, loops, overpasses, gradients, an elevated dirt berm, and a 90-foot tunnel underneath Mrs. Disney's flower bed!

The complete history of the Disney railroads, from small scale models to steam trains for the Disney parks is covered. This is a book all Disney collectors and railroad enthusiasts will want to experience! Over 300 illustrations, many previously unpublished. Long out of print, this book is in new condition; autographed by the author. Item # 7245, $299

Own a Piece of Walt Disney's Backyard Railroad- 
The Carolwood Pacific!

It's no secret that Walt Disney loved trains! From 1950 to 1953 Walt Disney operated a miniature live-steam train on the property of his home on Carolwood Drive near Beverly Hills.  He called his railroad the Carolwood Pacific, and named its engine Lilly Belle in honor of his wife Lillian.  Disney
's family, celebrities and neighborhood children alike road the rails with Walt on the track that crisscrossed his backyard and circled his house.  But after only a few short years, Walt turned his attention to a larger railroad- the one that would circle Disneyland- and the Carolwood Pacific made its last run in 1953.  In 1968 Lillian Disney donated the aluminum track to the Los Angeles Live Steamers organization for use at their Griffith Park layout.  There it formed "the Disney loop" until the 1990's when it was replaced with steel rail.  With assistance from Michael Broggie (whose father helped build Walt's backyard railroad), Carolwood Pacific Historical Society member Terry S. Lynn purchased a number of sections of the Walt Disney track from L.A. Live Steamers.  Here I'm pleased to offer a section of Walt Disney's track, mounted to an 8.5" X 11" descriptive card.  Each section of track is approximately 1 1/2 inches long, and each exhibits its own wear pattern, so the weathering will differ from the one shown.  Included is the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  A very special display piece for any Disney or train enthusiast.  Makes a great Disney gift!  Item # 2309, $89

   1950's Disneyland Railroad Ticket

(This image not clickable)

 When Disneyland first opened, Sante Fe and Disneyland Railroad passengers used these elaborate multi-part tickets for passage.  Measuring almost 12 inches long, this elaborately decorated ticket was printed before Disneyland's plans were finalized; it includes a stub for the Holidayland station which was never built.  Tape residue on left edge; otherwise fine.  And like the Adventureland stub says, "Elephants check trunks with Baggage man!

1960's Electric Disneyland Monorail Train by Schuco
Tested and Guaranteed to Run!
(Most photos clickable for a larger view)
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric monorail train to the highest German standards.  Almost 15" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production  closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960s standards and few could afford them.  Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recently, but 18 volt DC powered electric train sets with variable speed in forward and reverse, with metal trim (just the way Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)!  A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20 volt electric train transformer.  

 This train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!  This one runs particularly well.   All the parts that originally came with this set are included, even the original Schuco black and red wires!  The tracks are cleaned and are ready to use.  All other parts are in excellent condition. The rubber pylon feet and the terminal track clips are still in their original cellophane bag!  Styrofoam insert looks particularly fresh.  Train shows very minor wear and original decals are in place.  Included with the set are the maintenance sheet and the original 24 page Schuco catalog.  I have included a photocopy of the instructions and my own tip sheet for setting up your Schuco Monorail and making it run like a charm.  An amazing Disneyland model train set, still ready to ride the rails after 50+ years! Item # 5317, $895  Insured shipping $16.95

Retlaw employee Identification Card 

rtwl1.jpg (36046 bytes) rtwl2.jpg (21959 bytes)
Disney theme park train aficionados probably already know that there was a time when the Sante Fe & Disneyland Railroad and the Disneyland Alweg Monorail weren't owned by Disneyland, but by Walt Disney's personal company, Retlaw Enterprises.  Walt Disney created WED Enterprises in December 1952 to oversee the design of Disneyland.  He also assigned the rights to his name and likeness to the company and eventually ownership of the Disneyland Railroad and Disneyland Monorail, which he personally owned.  WED (now called Walt Disney Imagineering) was sold to the Walt Disney Productions in January 1965.  But not included in that sale were the rights to Walt Disney's name and ownership of the Disneyland Railroad and Disneyland Monorail.  On February 5, 1965, he assigned those properties to a new company, Retlaw Enterprises (Walter spelled backwards).  Finally, in 1982, the Disney family sold the naming rights and rail-based attractions to the Disney Studio.  Retlaw continued operations with a small office in Los Angeles managing the Disney family's television stations and real estate holdings.  In 1999 Retlaw sold its remaining 11 television stations, and in 2005 the remaining divisions of Retlaw officially became part of the Walt Disney Family Foundation, a non-profit organization led by Diane Disney Miller.  This is a genuine Retlaw employee I.D. card featuring the official Retlaw mirrored "R" logo.   A rare artifact of the company Walt Disney created to take care of his family.  Credit-card size, on heavy paper; in like-new condition.  We have several, so the number shown on the card may vary.  Item # 3700, $99

Pass For Walt Disney's Backyard Train
wdcprrpass1.jpg (66122 bytes) IMG_0cppss003.jpg (33867 bytes)
An unused pass for Walt Disney's backyard live-steam railroad, the Carolwood-Pacific.  Walt Disney's famous backyard railroad was installed in 1950, but by 1954 Walt Disney had turned his sights to a bigger railroad- the one being built to circle Disneyland- and this pass was never used.  The line for the President's signature is where Walt Disney would sign.  These passes were kept at Walt's home and in his office and given only to closest associates- after all, in effect it was an invitation to Walt's home.  A very special artifact from the live steam railroad Walt loved so dearly.  We have several, so the number on the pass may vary.  Item #1030, $149.95
