Track Rails Installed in Walt Disney World Railroad Tunnel Beneath TRON Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom

The first train track rails have been installed in the Walt Disney World Railroad tunnel beneath TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom. The railroad has been closed since late 2018 to make way for the construction of the new coaster in Tomorrowland.

The coaster’s track and exterior canopy have been completed. The coaster is partially indoors and partially outdoors.

The walls are still mostly rebar and wood.

The track rails (the long edges of the tracks) are just inside the tunnel. The area outside of the tunnel is still under construction.

The track rails aren’t very visible during the day, but you can just barely see one in our brightened photo below.
