The latest arrival at the Ranch is the original tender tank from Disneyland Railroad No. 1 “C.K. Holliday,” acquired from the Poway-Midland Railroad near San Diego. No. 1 was the second of two 5/8-scale 4-4-0s built at the Disney Studios for Disneyland’s opening in 1955, with the No. 2 being the primary motive power assigned to our “Retlaw One” coaches.
The tank is still lettered for the D.L.R.R. and Phil is considering building a tank car out of it. In any event, it is a neat acquisition and at the very least willl make a fitting display at the Ranch.
