(Disneyland, 1957) An original wheel from the "Disneyland Railroad". Walt knew he wanted a railroad at his park from the earliest beginnings of Disneyland, and the Disneyland Railroad continues to bring enjoyment to generations of park-goers since it first opened along with the park in 1955. Original artifacts actually used by the Disneyland Railroad are exceptionally rare, and few are as desirable as these stylish and easily identifiable red and black wheels. This sturdy metal wheel is embossed with the text "Disneyland R.R." on the front and measures approximately 20" in diameter and 5" thick. The condition is good with some expected wear throughout from use, including some wear to the original red paint. The back side of the wheel has a few embossed notes such as the year "57", the notes "2G" and "T227", and the additional numbers "11" and "7". This item will require special shipping arrangements; please contact us for inquires and estimates.
