Carolwood Pacific Railroad

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Carolwood Pacific Railroad was a private railroad built and owned by Walt Disney.

The layout of Walt's backyard railroad. The "barn" is the small building at top left. Lillian Disney had the tracks removed several years after Walt's death and donated them to the Los Angeles Live Steamers, a group of steam train enthusiasts. The house, the footprint of which is shown here, was demolished in the late 1990s.


From Jan-Eric Nyström

All of the equipment was removed when Walt's interest shifted to the 3-foot gauge steam locomotives at Disneyland.
