The Best Seat for The Mine Train!

For these two little boys from March 1962, there is no better seat on The Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland than the ones they are occupying right now. Look at those smile!

A closeup for all gear-heads!

This detailed view shows guests on pack mules riding by some of the buildings in the quaint town of Rainbow Ridge.

This previously posted shot, also from the 1960’s, shows another family that is also very happy about their seat on the attraction. And how about those hats!!

What a fantastic post! Great photos and great details. I personally like the fire barrel, in the first photo to the right of the cab, above the tunnel leading into Nature's Wonderland (Beaver Valley to be precise).

Always your pal,

When I was a kid I always wanted to ride in the cab but someone always beat me to it.

I love the steam gauge, piping, and firebox in the cab. None of them were actually necessary as the locomotives were really powered by electric batteries, but it's that Walt-era attention to detail that set the standard and is a big part of what set Disneyland above its competition.
