Frontierland Attractions July 1955

After visiting the stage coach, the photographer then traveled to the Frontierland Railroad Station. This is the original station when it was in use, not plopped across the track to serve as a set piece. The conductor is wearing his hat, but no hat badge. I like the kids playing the part of pioneers wearing their cowboy hats.

The next image is of the stately Mark Twain at dock. A very nice moody shot with the Twain on a very empty river.

I wish this station could somehow still be used (although it would be impractical to have the train stop more often)...it's possibly my favorite of all the stations.
