Railroad Hand Car At Disney's Wilderness Lodge: The Everyday Adventures Of the Purple Van March 26, 2010

You never know where you'll see a railroad car turn up in Walt Disney World. Walt's fascination with trains shows up in the most unlikely places. This railroad hand car is in the lobby of Wilderness Lodge but it looks like it would fit right it at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, doesn't it?

Hand cars like this were often used for maintenance on railroads and were powered by two people pushing and pulling the seesaw-like handles up and down. You can find this one in the left rear of the lobby next to the giant fireplace. Note the Wilderness Lodge bear logo...

Disney's Wilderness Lodge is located in Walt Disney World.
