Trains always fascinated Walt Disney.  His uncle was an engineer, and in the summer as a teenage Walt Disney sold newspapers and snacks on the Atchison, Topeka and Sante Fe.  Inspired by Disney artists Ollie Johnston and Ward Kimball, and with the help of Disney Studio mechanical genius Roger Broggie, Walt built a miniature live steam train in the Studio's machine shop.  After testing on the Studio lot, the train was installed on the property of his home on Carolwood Drive near Beverly Hills in the early 1950's.  He called his train the "Carolwood-Pacific," and named it's engine the Lilly Belle in honor of his wife Lillian.  Walt's layout included 2,615 feet of track included a 46-foot long trestle and a 90-foot tunnel.  Walt delighted in taking his daughters, their neighborhood friends, and Hollywood stars like Kirk Douglas for rides along the CP's rails. 

Eventually Walt Disney turned his attention to a larger railroad- the one that would encircle Disneyland- and Walt retired the Carolwood Pacific.  When the last of the railroad was dismantled a few years after Walt's death, most of the track was given to a Los Angeles live-steam club, and a few sections were stored away by his family and others with close ties (pardon the pun) to the Carolwood Pacific Railroad.  This rare section of Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific train track was owned by Disney Imagineer John Patrick Burke (1949-2014).  Pat Burke spent 30 years at Imagineering and worked on Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Frontierland, Indian Jones and many more Disney attractions at California's Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland. 

This section of Walt Disney's train track
measures approximately 15" x 12.5" and is comprised of two aluminum rails attached to five wooden ties.  The track is in weathered condition consistent with outdoor use, just as it was when Walt Disney last rode these rails.  Two newer pieces of wood have been added to the base with eye hooks for easy wall hanging.  A modern Carolwood Pacific Railroad metal emblem has been attached to the center tie for display.  Rarely does such an impressive item, formerly owned by Walt Disney come onto the market.  Walt Disney's Carolwood Drive home has been demolished and now this track is one of the only tangible pieces of that famous property and its live steam railroad available for ownership by a private collector.  Walt Disney's Lille Belle engine, tender, and caboose now rest on a section of this track in the Walt Disney Family Museum, and the barn in which Walt Disney stored his Carolwood Pacific rolling stock has been turned into a museum in Los Angeles.  This section of track is indeed a museum piece.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.  A larger section of Walt's track sold at auction this month for $60,000!  Item # 2278, $11,995

1960's Disneyland Electric Monorail SUPER SET!
The Giant 4 Car, 200+ Piece Setup

Click any image for a better view

Click any image for a better view

Guaranteed To Run!
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric Disneyland monorail train to the highest German standards. Almost 20" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960’s 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 Disney Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)! 

Here is the Granddaddy of them all—the 6333/S set!  This is the largest Disneyland monorail set that Schuco made, over 200 pieces.  Features the rare, extra-long FOUR car monorail trail and 31 pieces of track and two switches!  The monorail has been tested and runs great.  New tires have been installed, and it's been oiled and greased. The train features good paint with minor wear to paint and one Santa Fe logo on the front unit. Click on the photo at right for a larger view of this great looking monorail.

Most of these large sets don't have complete box lids, but THIS ONE DOES!  The box shows wear, but ALL of the pieces to the lid are there.  The yellow insert is in good condition with the usual cracks (see photos).  All the accessories are in very good condition.  The track is clean and the switches all greased and oiled.  The block signals work and have very few of the usual melt marks. EVERY COMPONENT including the track switches has been tested and is guaranteed to work.  The original German 24 page manual is included, plus a photocopy of English instructions.  All small parts are present- some still in original packaging.

 A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20+ volt electric train transformer available at a hobby store (a transformer capable of a least 18 volts is best).  This is a rare electric Disneyland Monorail train you'll enjoy running for years!  Item # 8062, $1499

   1950's Disneyland Railroad Ticket
 This image is 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.  In fine condition.  And like the ticket says, "No shooting buffalo from the train!"  Scan does not show all of Adventureland stub; it's too big for our scanner!  In very fine condition; I have two, so serial number may differ.  Item # 3584, $159.95

The Disneyland Monorail made history when it debuted in 1959, the first of its kind anywhere in the country.  To commemorate Disneyland's 50th birthday, the original designer Disney Legend Bob Gurr collaborated with other Disney artists and Master Replicas to lovingly recreate this die-cast metal O scale model with all the authentic details from the foot pedals down to the precise placement of each rivet. Other impeccable details include working headlights, taillights and a top beacon light.  Only 1959 were made, representing the year the Disneyland Monorail was placed in service.  The Monorail nameplate in the base is removable and can be worn as a badge.  Monorail requires 2 button-cell batteries, included.

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, $125

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

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, $149.95
