Recommends it for: Train fans, Disneyland fans, Walt Disney fans
Having been a "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" tour guide at Disneyland AND an engineer on the Steam Trains, I can say with full confidence that this is THE best book written about Walt Disney and his vision of Disneyland, and his love of trains.

The photographs are outstanding, the writing is wonderful, interesting, and easy to read, and the the stories, history, and facts are amazing.

Buy this book for yourself, and get an extra copy to give to someone who likes Disney - they'll be very thankful!

This is a wonderful in depth story of the influence of railroading on Walt's life. The story is a biography of railroading's influence on Walt and his creations. It's a wonderful coffee table book, but also very fun to read and quite interesting
