creds to TrainDude for the trucks and Mostly for doing work

Info - The Beginning
Walt Disney always had trains in his life. He loved them dearly. The main reason he opened up the amsuement parks was just so he could operate a train, some said. So, in 1969, Broggie and Vilmer (who were hoping to aid Disney in his quest) landed in the Yucatan, in Mexico, where they were selling their steam locomotives to convert to diesel. Locomotives 274 and 275 were choosen. They were made by Baldwin in 1926. Shortly after, 260 and a fourth locomotive was purchased.

Info- To Florida
It wouldn't be until 1971 that the first locomotive would arrive. Instead of shipping it across the ocean by boat, because Roger realized it would cost three times as much. Instead, they decided to move the locomotives by rail, and even had 2 armed body gaurds onboard until the engines reached the border. The locomotives had only costed $8,000 USD each. The journey would end in Tampa, at a railcar shop.

Info- The Legacy
After traveling 2,000 miles by rail, the locomotives and 20 excursion cars finally reached Disney World.
Between this time, another, 5th locomotive had been purchased. This was the Lilly Belle, who was the first to arrive, followed by the Walter E. Disney. The last to arrive would be the Ward Kimball (which would enter service in the late 90's). The Lilly Belle would become a "guest" locomotive later on, and the Walt E. Disney would be repainted to red, as shown below.
