An ORIGINAL Walt Disney Train Wheel - NOT A REPRODUCTION!


For several years in the early 1950's Walt Disney owned and operated a miniature live-steam train on the property of his home on Carolwood Drive near Beverly Hills.  He called his train the "Carolwood-Pacific," and named it's engine, the Lilly Belle, in honor of his wife, Lillian.  Here I offer for sale an original piece of Walt Disney's personal backyard train.  Disney Studio mechanical genius Roger Broggie (later named a Disney Legend) taught Walt Disney to use many of the tools in the studio machine shop and helped Walt Disney build the Carolwood Pacific.

Roger's son, Michael Broggie, author of the wonderful book WALT DISNEY'S RAILROAD STORY and founder of the Carolwood-Pacific Historical Society, discovered a small number of Carolwood-Pacific wheels among the items his father had saved from the Carolwood Pacific when it was removed from Walt's backyard.  In the early 1990's Michael Broggie had the wheels mounted on an attractive wood display and worded the following plaque:

  "This one-eighth scale railroad wheel was cast in 1949 for the miniature live steam railroad Walt Disney operated at his home at 355 Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills, California from 1950 to 1953. Walt personally built many parts for the train in the Studio Machine Shop. The initials W.E.D. that are cast in the wheel stand for Walter Elias Disney. Later, WED became the name for the Imagineering team that created Disneyland."

The wheel is embossed with Walt's initials and the date, "WED 1949," and with the words "BURBANK, CALIFORNIA" the location of the Disney Studio.  Broggie numbered each of the wheels plaques; this is number 49 out of 50 from his father's collection.  Collectors bought up the 50 wheels quickly about 25 years ago, and they have seldom since come back onto the open market.   Display measures 8" x 16" overall; wheel measures 4.5" in diameter.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.

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 1960’s standards and few could afford them. Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recentl
y, 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.  

The train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!  

This set is in very good condition with a great running train Nice red paint; the box is also is also in good condition with bright graphics and some tape on the corners.  Original 1960's price tag still on the box.  The styrofoam insert is also very good with only a couple of minor dings. All the accessories are present, including the original Schuco red and black wires.  Includes photocopies of the 24 page German manual and photocopies of several other instructional and informational sheets.  The tracks have been cleaned and new rubber tires installed-- this train is guaranteed to run beautifully!  I have also included my own "Quick Start" 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!  If you are looking for a fantastic working set, look no further!  Item # 6070, $995

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.

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 excellent condition.  I have two; you may receive a different serial number.  Item # 3585A, $159.95

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
