Desktop: Lilly Belle

This week's desktop is of a familiar scene and a very fancy railcar. The recently restored Lilly Belle was formerly known as the Grand Canyon (#106) many years ago. Ironically it was the Grand Canyon diarama that put these cars out of service - it was too hard to see the displays. This car was turned into a private car in the 70's and was used to entertain dignitaries, etc. By the 90's it was starting to show its age and was taken out of service for restoration. It was returned to service at the end of 2005 and once again is making the rounds on the Disneyland Railroad.
