Walt Disney's Railroad Story DVD

$25.99
SKU: 935756

After more than 20 years and over 20,000 copies since the original  publishing of “Walt Disney’s Railroad Story,” which won the Benjamin  Franklin Gold Medal, it was decided to produce a professional DVD based  upon the 432-page book. Drawing upon his personal experiences, Disney Author and Historian  Michael Broggie has toured the country giving presentations to over 1.7  million people on Walt Disney’s lifelong enchantment with railroads.  Now, this theme has been captured in an hourlong production featuring  film, photographs, videos and stories. 


Thousands of books and articles have been written about Walt Disney  and his organization, yet few people realize the significance  railroading played in the evolution of the Disney empire. Encouraged by  Walt's family and railfans inside and outside the Disney organization,  Michael Broggie has chronicled the tale of Walt Disney's personal  involvement in railroading. This book unveils the private realm of Disney railroading through  hundreds of photographs, many of which have never before been made  public, and interviews with Mrs. Walt Disney, Diane Disney Miller, Ward  Kimball, Ollie Johnston, Bob Harpur, Bill Cottrell, Roger Broggie, Bill  Evans, and many others. Walt Disney's love affair with trains began in his hometown of  Marceline, Missouri. His first job was selling tobacco, candy, and  newspapers on the Missouri Pacific line. By 1950, his enthusiasm for  realistic model trains had evolved into an elaborate backyard live steam  railroad. Walt's Carolwood Pacific Railroad included a 46-foot-long  trestle, loops, overpasses, gradients, an elevated dirt berm, and a  90-foot tunnel underneath Mrs. Disney's flower bed! The complete history of the Disney railroads, from small scale models  to steam trains for the Disney parks is covered. This is a book all  Disney collectors and railroad enthusiasts will want to experience! Over  300 illustrations, many previously unpublished. This latest  edition contains a full listing of all Disney Legends
