Retlaw On Main Street and Tomorrowland
Walt Disney loved trains all of his life. From a childhood spent in Marceline where he watched and listened to trains, to his young teens when he worked as a news butcher to middle age when he found a renewed passion and constructed a backyard steam railroad at his house. When building Disneyland, Walt kept ownership of the trains creating a holding company named Retlaw (that is Walter spelled backwards.) When the Monorail was built, Retlaw owned the Monorail as well since it was a train of the future. The first image is the Main Street Station in all it's glory. The station was owned and operated by Retlaw.
Next up is the Submarine Voyage with a great shot of the Submarine and also the Monorail track owned by Retlaw.
