This week we heard the last of the familiar train whistles for a while as the Walt Disney Railroad temporarily suspended operations while construction on the new TRON attraction nears the railroad tracks in Disney World‘s Magic Kingdom.
However, fans of the Walt Disney World Railroad need not despair. Even though you can’t ride the train, you can at least visit when you’re in the park.
The train now sits “in residence” in the Main Street, U.S.A. Train Station.
While the train is “in residence” in the station you will have a unique opportunity to get up-close views, as well as take some photos.
For train buffs this is a rare chance to walk the platform and explore the train in a crowd-free environment.
You’ll find signs like this one we saw in Fantasyland at all of the train stations in the park.
The train isn’t the only attraction with changes or closures as TRON construction progresses, with an opening set for 2021. The pathway between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland from Space Mountain to the Barnstormer is now closed as well.
For fans of the train, even though you can’t ride it currently, we did spot a newly released t-shirt featuring Mickey Mouse encouraging all of us to Ride the Rails!
Are you looking forward to the opening of the TRON attraction? Let us know in the comments below!
