The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad (HKDLRR) is a narrow gauge railroad at Hong Kong Disneyland. It opened together with the park on September 12, 2005. The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad is the first attraction seen when entering the park. The train transports guests around the park which is also known as the "Grand Circle Tour".
The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad has two passenger trains and three locomotives:
Walter E. Disney
This train is named after Walt Disney, the founder of the Walt Disney Company. It also has 5 cars which are named after cities in California, namely Anaheim, Burbank, Glendale, Los Angeles, and California.
Roy O. Disney
Frank G. Wells
This locomotive is named after Frank Wells, one of the presidents of WED. There are no coaches for this locomotive, so it uses the same cars that the Walter E. Disney and Roy O. Disney uses, provided that one of the locomotives are not running.
Then the train arrives in Fantasyland and makes a stop at the Fantasyland Station. The train now departs Fantasyland Station with guests given a view of Fantasy Gardens, Mad Hatter Tea Cups, the walkway to It's a Small World, and travels underneath the queue line of The Golden Mickeys.
Now, guests arrive in Tomorrowland where they view Space Mountain and the some of the tracks of Autopia. It later shows the showbuilding of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters with audio-animatronics of the Little Green Men viewing the guests.
After, the train finally arrives back at the Main Street Station.
- The steam locomotives are actually fake. The tenders are the real locomotives that haul the trains. They run on diesel fuel while typical steam audio (chuffing, steam whistle, etc.) are emitted from speakers. This is due to Hong Kong's strict standards regarding emissions, as well as a cost-cutting measure to avoid having build new steam locomotives, or finding and shipping suitable narrow guage steam locomotives. Walt Disney would not be happy with this design if he was still living though.
