A Trip On The Skyway With a Viewmaster Personal Camera

Our intrepid Viewmaster photographer used his B Ticket in 1958 and climbed aboard the Skyway. Along the way he snapped a couple of images, the first being a nice view of the Yacht Bar and the roofs of the Tomorrowland structures. In the distance can be seen Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

The next interesting object that caught his eye was the Viewliner in station. If memory serves me correct, the blue train was the Fantasyland train and the pink train was the Tomorrowland train.

For those who want the true 3-D effect, I have posted the two images of the Viewliner for you viewing pleasure. Do not sue me or even blame me if your eyes get cross-eyed and you have to go see your optometrist.

I'm now cross-eyed! The Skyway buckets sure do stand out. And that's a really great view of the Viewliner at the station... but why does it look like it's starting to unload before it's pulled all the way in?

Wow, the rare Viewliner (and even rarer BLUE Viewliner)! In 3-D!! I've always wondered how Viewmaster never managed to do even one picture of the Viewliner, since the reels were changed and updated so often.

Absolutely incredible. The Yacht Bar and The Blue Viewliner. This person obviously knew where his priorities were when it came to taken pictures. Great job Matterhorn. You have made my day. Unreal. Thanks

Matterhorn do you have any pictures of the logo on the front of the cow catcher on the Viewliner? I have been dying to see this logo for a long time. Much appreciated, Richard.
