Back to Rainbow Mountain, September 1959



The photos of the Rainbow Mountain Train seemed to go over well, so I have included 2 more from the same batch of slides. The shots aren’t quite as great, but they still show some cool things you may not normally see.



And for all of you who don’t give a rat’s ass about Rainbow Mountain/Ridge, here’s one for you, also from September 1959: the Motor Boat Cruise, which survived until 1993.



See more vintage Disneyland photos at my website.

The Mine Train shots are nice, especially with the brilliant late-morning sunshine. And the Motor Boat Cruise photo is really great as well.

Great - green train color photos are rare... Although you guys make them look common!

The should bring back the Motor Boat Cruise! That area of Fantasyland/Tomorrowland is too empty and they could really plus it up this time and make it something special.
