The Ticket Window At The Frontierland Train Station

A nice view of the actual ticket window located at the Frontierland Train Station. Lots of information is posted on signs and paintings in regards to the type of ticket and cost for a ticket.

Here is a close up of the window and counter. Note the date stamp used to date the souvenir train tickets. Also note the stack of D tickets in the office.

And another close up of the ticket book sign on one of the windows.

The shade pull string ring is cool. I remember those when I was a youngin'. Do they even manufacture pull string shades anymore?

Agree with K. Martinez... the pull string is pretty darn cool.

I wonder what were the photographs of in the frames on the back wall? Also, can anyone make out what is written on the window on the left side? It looks like it says, "Exchange" ('D' Coupon). I think it is interesting that the fonts are different.

Always your pal,

Matthew- I believe it does say Exchange D Coupon. At this time the souvenir train tickets were in use, so you would exchange a D coupon for the souvenir ticket.

Thanks PJ. I have a couple of those used souvenir train tickets hiding in a box somewhere... never would have thought it would have been an exchange, but that makes sense. You rock when it comes to the details. Hope you're doing well and we will see each other soon!

This is wonderful, Patrick! The way they are framed, the photographs on the interior wall suggest movie stills. Perhaps from 'So Dear To My Heart'?

Matthew said...

Wow! outsidetheberm, that would make sense... but I wonder if that was too close a movie tie in for those days. I was thinking just good ol' fashioned Rail Road photos... but it would be interesting to know.
