TriviaEdit

  • When this locomotive operates at Walt Disney World it was lettered Walt Disney World Railroad and it's named after Walt Disney's older brother and business partner, "Roy Oliver Disney".
  • This locomotive's entry into service on the WDWRR was delayed until December 1, 1971 after the park opened due to the need for repairs to a crack in its frame.
  • The locomotive's whistle is a lonesome Hancock Short Bell 3 chime. But in the mid 1980s, it sounded so bassy and low-pitched due to one of its chambers getting clogged up. Sometime around summer 2015, the whistle's chambers were cleaned up and made it sounded prototypical again.
