Much of the Walt Disney World Railroad track was replaced last year and Engine 1, the Walter E. Disney, was refurbished. The refurbished engine has been used to test the new track throughout Magic Kingdom, so we may see it here at Storybook Circus soon.

Meanwhile, crew members continue to work on the Walt Disney World Railroad tunnel that will run below TRON Lightcycle / Run.
