All aboard... for awesome!  An authentic Disneyland Railroad sign from the Happiest Place on Earth!  This large, striking steel sign features Sleeping Beauty castle under the famous and evocative DISNEYLAND logotype.  The sign offered here- a genuine sign used at Disneyland- is the type used on the Disneyland rolling stock called "Holiday Red."  The Disneyland Railroad has four "sets" of passenger cars.  Depending on which train pulls into the station (the Excursion train, Holiday Green, Holiday Blue, or Holiday Red) you board front-facing excursion cars, side-facing gondola cars, or a combination of gondola and cattle cars trailed by a caboose.  The Disneyland Railroad sign offered here is type of sign is seen on the latter combination of train cars, Holiday Red. 

Originally named Retlaw 2, this train set consists of four gondola cars, three cattle cars, and the caboose, and all but two cars of Holiday Red were put into service for Disneyland's opening day, July 17, 1955.  At that time this combination of rolling stock was known as Retlaw 2 (Walter spelled backwards), since Walt Disney retained ownership of the Disneyland trains in the early years. 

In the photos above you can see the same type of sign on Holiday Red as it takes Disneyland guests on a grand circle tour around Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom.  Now this spectacular original Disneyland sign can remind YOU of the great adventures you've had at the Happiest Place on Earth.

A smaller 18" x 18" version  of this this sign sold for over $7,600.00 including buyer's premium at the Van Eaton auction in December 2016.  This much larger sign is an imposing 32" x 32" and weighs nearly 20 pounds!  You can see both sizes in one of the above photos.  This sign is constructed of sturdy steel and will be the centerpiece of any train room, play room, or Disney collection!   The sign is in very fine condition with one screw hole in each corner.  Shows minor handling and scratches from use at Disneyland.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  Item # 9958, $6495

Original Pass For Walt Disney's Backyard Train
An unused, original pass for Walt Disney's backyard live-steam railroad, the Carolwood-Pacific.  This is NOT the Disney Archive reproduction (those all have the word "facsimile" on the back).  This is the 1950's authentic pass for Walt Disney's backyard railroad, dated the year Disneyland opened.  Walt's famous live steam railroad was installed in 1950, but by 1955 Walt Disney had turned his sights to a bigger railroad- the one circling Disneyland- and 1955 passes were 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.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  We have several, so the number on the pass may vary.  Item #1030, $199

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!  I'm down to the last few pieces of these so order soon.

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
