DDW Pic 394. Walt Disney World Railroad
Walt Disney World Railroad
I shot this picture of the Roger E. Broggie engine while it was at the new Storybook Circus station. This is one of four engines that pull coaches around the Magic Kingdom. Along with the Walter E. Disney, the Lilly Belle, and the Roy O. Disney, the Broggie is an authentic steam engine that was built in the early 1900s. The Roger E. Broggie was named after the first "Imagineer" in the Walt Disney Company. Roger helped build the Carolwood Pacific Railroad at Walt Disney's home, in addition to leading the effort to acquire the locomotives for the Walt Disney World Railroad. Roger was also the first Imagineer to work on the Epcot project.
