Two Views at Disneyland

From a collection of 1956 slides, two photographic views of transportation within and outside of Disneyland. The first image shows one of the green Rainbow Mine trains coming out of the tunnel and into the station. The sign over the tunnel is very cool, reading Caution Explosives Do Not Enter R.M.R.R. Co.

The second photograph for today is of the Disneyland Hotel tram (single car) dropping off guests at the main entrance. What a wonderful color scheme for the tram.

The Mine Train photo is really good, but that Tram photo is fantastic! As nice as they get, and amazing color too.

Thanks Matterhorn!

Note the old black on yellow license plate from '56

You have great photos! Wow, what memories of great times. Thanks for sharing.
Have you thought of selecting a good sample of a certain area and using the Microsoft Photosynth site to create a 3-d image of a part of the park? I think it would be wild!

Awesome shots!

Rodney is right. Photosynth is one of the wildest applications we've seen in a long time. We should all be playing with this, folks!

Who's going first?
