What young boy would not want to find this Disneyland Express Railroad Train toy sitting under their Christmas Tree in 1959? What crazed Disneyland collector wouldn't want to see the same thing in 2006? This is one of two toys put out by Auburn Rubber that ties into Disneyland, the other toy is a Disneyland Stagecoach. The box graphics really make this toy with the nice 1959 graphics on one side of the box and the 1959 style lettering used for Disneyland. This box is in good condition, missing the tie downs for Mickey Engineer, Donald Frontiersman and Pluto Engineer holding his lantern. Box is also missing the cellophane that would have gone on the window to protect the toy.
And here is an image of the jolly old soul who brings these types of toys to all the kids in the world. He appears to be checking his list at Disneyland before his big night, I love the sunglasses he is wearing. The publicity tag attached to the photo reads: Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse get together for an hour of music and entertainment on "Christmas in Disneyland" a special program in which an old man (Art Carney) finds the spirit of Christmas.
