Cruising Around Cascade Peak

This vintage April 1963 shot shows the Nature's Wonderland Railroad circling around Cascade Peak. How lucky is that little boy in the sailor cap to be sitting in the cab like that?!?

If you have never heard of Cascade Peak, here is a wider angle photo from November 1963 showing you its former location near the Mark Twain/Columbia Dock:

Can't get by without a closeup of the Mine Train:

HUGE FAVOR DEPARTMENT: Over at Instagram, Matt Buch of House Of The Mouse continually reposts my photos as his own, removing my website name from the photo and refusing to add a credit even though I have asked him to. How about letting him know with a comment or two just how uncool that is?

See more of the once mighty Cascade Peak at my main website.

I really loved this attraction!

I always wanted to sit in the cab when I was little but never got the chance. The pictures brought back some good memories.

I've never seen the knee-length red trench coat on a Mine Train operator before. That's Cool! Thanks, Dave.

I feel your pain re: "House of The Mouse". Happens to me all the time, though I definitely see your photos WAY more (on Facebook and such). I especially love it when they crop off a watermark and add their own.

I just don't understand why people can't give credit where it's due. It's as if the very idea is painful to them.
