tdr0540_Western River Railroad is slower than bicycle? Surprisingly short track length


“Western River Railroad” is an attraction that is opened at the same time Tokyo Disneyland opened, which is April 15th 1983.

It is real steam locomotive that has entrance located at Adventureland and it goes back to Adventureland by going through Critter Country and Westernland.

Kerosene is used for fuel (heavy oil was used when it opened) and the car body, which has 4 cars have design of locomotive that actually used in 19th Century of America.

That is why it gives you an atmosphere of retro deeply.

Anyway, as I have explained above Western River Railroad has circular track that starts from Adventureland and goes back to Adventureland.

It is not a vehicle for the purpose of traveling, so guests cannot get off in the middle of the journey.

This is an attraction that has purpose of looking over the view calmly.

It takes about 15 minutes to go around.

Track length is 0.72 mile and the maximum speed is 7.45 mph.

This is slower than bicycle and the speed is more like jogging.

Because it is so slow it means guests can enjoy the view slowly.

It wouldn’t be a bad idea to spend relaxing time by going on nostalgic steam locomotive for a break.

May be the exhausted body and mind will be refreshed?
