Casey Junior's Circus Special



As I mentioned before, I was unable to ride the Storybook Land canal boats due to them being closed, BUT I was able to hop onto Casey Junior's Circus Train instead! Always good to have alternatives. I took the opportunity to snap a recent shot of what was once this attraction's ticket booth.

Interesting to note that while the chimney now has a whimsical bend to it, the roof tiles have taken a turn towards dullsville.



A closer look at the ticket window for you:



Back to present day, as I waited (somewhat) patiently in the line queue, I photographed Casey making his journey back towards the station.





Here he comes…I wonder which car I'll get?



Turning around I shot these beautiful topiary arches, which look even better at night when the lights are twinkling.



All aboard!

The new signage kills the architecture of the Casey Jr. station/former ticket booth. Tacky tack-on. I'm pretty sure the station chimney has always had a whimsical bent to it.

I'm guessing those minaret shaped topiary arches are supposed to represent Aladdin since the next scene is the Cave of Wonders.

I love the patchwork quilt shot where you capture the entire Casey Jr. Circus Train. Nice job as always. Thanks, Dave.

Good catch on the chimney, Ken - I guess angle of the shot has everything to do with my perception!
