One of the best times to catch a ride aboard the Disneyland Railroad is after dark. The steam from the engine is much easier to see against shadows and a dark night sky and it’s simply magical to travel around the park that way.
Getting a picture like this is something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while but the timing never really seemed to work out. We haven’t spent many evenings at the park lately and when we have, we usually find ourselves too tired to wait. Not all of the engines are positioned like this above the tunnel. Not only do you have to wait for a train to arrive at the station, you have to wait for the right one, which is what I finally did for this picture. Then I stood my ground like a rock against the current as people left Disneyland, wondering what in the world I was doing.
So what do you say? Are you ready for a nighttime excursion aboard the Disneyland Railroad?
