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 had four "sets" of passenger cars.  Depending on which train pulled into the station (the Excursion train, Holiday Green, Holiday Blue, or Holiday Red) you board front-facing excursion cars, side-facing gondola cars, or-- back in the day-- 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.  This style of sign is still featured on the caboose today! 

Holiday Red consisted 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's gondola cars and caboose 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.

This large steel sign measures 32" x 32".  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 weighs almost 17 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!   Sign has one original screw hole in each corner; shows minor handling and scratches from use at Disneyland; some black paint missing on a "D" and one of the round dots; otherwise very fine condition.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.

   Actual Piece of Haunted Mansion "Little Leota" Film
Above:  Typical film section Above:  Little Leota as she appears in the attraction.

     "Hurry back... Hurry back... Be sure to bring your Death Certificate..."
For about fifty years that haunting call has become an iconic part of Disney's Haunted Mansion attraction.  She may be only about 16" tall, but as the last ghost we see in the classic attraction, Little Leota is an image we never forget.  She's now a 21st century all-digital ghost, but there was a time when Little Leota's face was projected using 16mm film.  Here I'm happy to offer three frames of the actual film created for use in WDW's Haunted Mansion.  Each film section varies slightly (mainly her mouth movement and eyelids) and is attached to my 8.5" x 11" Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  Each section measures approximately 16mm x 23mm.

An ORIGINAL Carolwood Pacific 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.  But after only a few short years in Walt Disney's backyard, Walt Disney turned his attention to a larger train- the one that would circle Disneyland- and Walt called Roger Broggie to dismantle his backyard railroad. 

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 Walt's backyard railroadIn 1993 Michael Broggie had the wheels mounted on an attractive wood display and worded the following plaque:

 

Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific Railroad Wheel
This one-eighth scale railroad wheel was cast in 1949 for the miniature of live steam railroad Walt Disney operated at his home on 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 WED are that are cast in the wheel stand for Walter Elias Disney. Later WED became the name for the Imagineering team that created Disneyland. Limited addition of 50:  36/50.  Copyright Retlaw enterprises

 

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.   Collectors bought up the wheels quickly almost 30 years ago,  and they have seldom since come back onto the open market.  Display measures approximately 16" tall x 8" wide; wheel measures 4.5" in diameter.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.   Item # 7900, $5995

Large Section of Walt Disney's
Carolwood Pacific Railroad Track
Click image for a larger view

This is a substantial segment of original track from the trestle of Walt Disney's personal backyard railroad.  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.

 Measuring 24" long, this impressive section of Walt's track with ties and spikes has been mounted against a bed of gravel inside an approximately 36" x34" and 5" deep shadowbox case.  An engraved plaque states it is one of only 10 of these large sections from the Carolwood Pacific salvaged for display.  Also framed with a diagram of the Carolwood Pacific track layout and photograph of Walt Disney with his locomotive.  Includes the Phil Sears Collectibles Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  A very special display piece-- in fact, museum piece-- for any Disney or train enthusiast.  Display weighs 46 pounds.  We have only this one available.  This item available for local Southern California pickup only as noted below.  Item # 7901, $7,950
About $795/Month on layaway!*

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was one of Walt Disney's World's most impressive attractions, sailing the Magic Kingdom's submarine lagoon from 1971 thru 1994.  When the attraction was shuttered, replacement parts in the Walt Disney World warehouses went unused.  I've obtained some of the ride's spare seaweed props and now a piece of this unforgettable voyage can yours!  The orange plastic seaweed piece measures five to six inches long and is stapled to a 12" x 8" print of the ride's attraction poster.  Each piece varies slightly.  A great collectible and a great way to remember this beloved attraction!  Worldwide shipping only $3.99 on this item! Item # 7230, $24.95 

 

 

An Actual Piece of Walt Disney's First Hollywood Workshop

When Walt Disney came to Hollywood in 1923, he roomed at his uncle Robert's house at 4406 Kingswell Avenue. He built an animation stand in his uncle's garage, and worked on an animated reel of cartoon jokes which he tried to sell to the Pantages Theater Company.

The garage-turned-studio was sold in 1982 and moved to the Garden Grove Historical Society, and has been on permanent display there for the past thirty+ years, just a few miles from Disneyland.

Leading the 1982 team that purchased and moved the garage was Disney employee and fan Arthur Adler. When the garage was moved, Adler saved the small pieces of wood that splintered off the garage during dismantling. These pieces, which were too small to be used in the restoration of the garage, are now available for sale to Walt Disney fans who appreciate the significance of having a little bit of Walt's first Hollywood workshop/studio as part of their personal collection.  

Authenticity: The saving of Walt Disney's garage from demolition, the moving of it to its current location, and the sale of the remnant pieces to me is documented in the Walt Disney history book, "Walt Disney's Garage of Dreams" by Arthur Adler, show at left. (The book is not included with this purchase, but is available on Amazon.)  On page 41 Adler mentions that he got too old to sell the pieces himself, he sold them to me, Phil Sears. Every piece includes my Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.

Also included is 15 page package of photocopied documentation prepared by Adler. It includes a short history of him saving the garage, a copy of a letter from the Disney Studio Archives, and some newspaper clippings.  The wood itself measures approximately 1" in length. Each piece, being original, will vary of course. The book "Walt Disney's Garage of Dreams" is not included. This purchase includes the wood artifact, the Certificate of Authenticity, and Adler's 15 page photocopied history packet.  Worldwide shipping only $3.99 on this item no matter how many you buy!  Item # 6000, $29.95
