The Viewliner Train of Tomorrow was a narrow-gauge, miniature train that once operated alongside portions of the Disneyland Railroad main line.


History

The attraction commenced operation on June 10, 1957 and was billed by Disneyland as "the fastest miniature train in the world." Two separate trains, designed by Disney Imagineer Bob Gurr, and built as scale replicas of General Motors' futuristic Aerotrain, traveled along a rail line with a turnaround loop at each end through parts of Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. The Tomorrowland train featured cars that were named for the planets, while the cars of the Fantasyland train were named after various Disney characters.

The attraction operated until September 30, 1958 when construction began on the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Submarine Voyage. The Disneyland Monorail System ultimately took the place of the Viewliner on June 14, 1959, thereby making it one of the shortest-lived rides in the park's history. The railroad ties from the attraction were later used to build the Deer Lake Park & Julian Railroad, a narrow-gauge backyard railroad owned by Disney animator Ollie Johnston at his vacation home near Julian, California.
