TriviaEdit

  • When operating at Walt Disney World it was lettered as Walt Disney World Railroad and it was named after an American mechanical engineer who worked with Walt Disney "Roger E. Broggie".
  • Both No. 1 and No. 3 are both operating 4-6-0 from the United Railways of Yucatan, and the Walt Disney World Railroad.
  • Imagineer Roger Broggie disliked the sound of this locomotive's bell before it was named after him. He said that it sounded like a hammer hitting an old frying pan. So, George Britton swapped the Roger E. Broggie locomotive and Liberty Belle riverboat's bells. The No. 3 locomotive ended up having the clearest-ringing bell, while the Liberty Belle riverboat had the awful-ringing bell.
  • The locomotive had been in worse condition compared to its twin No. 1 Walter E. Disney but turned out to be the smoothest running locomotive when rebuilt.
  • The locomotive's whistle is a Buckeye 3 inch 3-chime at a half-step lower pitch, though it was swapped out for a Crosby 3 inch 3-chime in January 2014. The Crosby used to be a spare whistle on No. 3 back in 1998, but permanently in 2014.
