Traveling the rails around the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World are four Baldwin steam locomotives. These locomotives had earlier lives in the Yucatan area of Mexico. Come along with me as we explore and learn about the construction of these locomotives by Baldwin, how they served in the Yucatan before being purchased by Walt Disney World, and how they were transformed to be part of the Victorian Magic Kingdom. We also learn about the history of narrow-gauge railroading and how it spread into the Yucatan. Finally, we explore the work Disney did to build the railroad infrastructure in Florida. Included as an epilogue is an art gallery along with a closer look at the Roy O. Disney locomotive. Please note: This book is an independent work of history and commentary. This is not a Disney product or associated with The Walt Disney Company.
