Trains of Disney is an excellent new exhibit in the Disney Gallery at Disneyland.
It includes original designs and artwork by some of Disney's best-known Imagineers. Click any photo to enlarge.
Here's a design for the Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland by Marc Davis, one of Disney's famed "Nine Old Men":
The Viewliner was at Disneyland for a short time in the late '50s. It was designed by Bob Gurr, who we were privileged to meet at a D23 event earlier this year:
Gurr, who designed many of the park's ride vehicles, also designed the Excursion Car on the Disneyland Railroad and the cars on the Casey Jr. Circus Train:
These color designs for Casey Jr. were by Bruce Bushman:
An interesting bit of trivia is that Bushman was the son of silent film star Francis X. Bushman.
According to the exhibit information, Casey Jr. was originally envisioned as a thrill ride!
Here's a concept of the Disneyland Railroad designed by Sam McKim:
Classic film fans may know McKim for his pre-Disney work as a child actor.
This concept for the Main Street Train Station was by Dorothea Holt Redmond:
