The black, red, and gold engine most closely resembles engine No. 1 of the Disneyland Railroad, the C.K. Holliday. The opening-day steam engine recently returned to service at Disneyland.

The C.K Holliday is named after Cyrus Kurtz Holliday, who is the founder of many railways, including the Santa Fe Railway — an official sponsor of the Disneyland Railroad from 1955 to 1974.

The locomotive was built by WED Enterprises, which is now known as Walt Disney Imagineering, in Burbank, California — from a design inspired by Walt Disney’s model train engine, the Lilly Belle. The Lily Belle was the centerpiece of his very own backyard railroad, the Carolwood Pacific. 

The C.K Holliday is a 4-4-0 engine, which was an American-type steam locomotive. On July 15, 1955 — Disneyland’s opening day — the C.K Holliday officially went into service.

The other engines at Disneyland are the E.P. Ripley, Fred Gurley, Ernest S. Marsh, and Ward Kimball. While the C.K. Holliday and E.P. Ripley were constructed for the opening of Disneyland, the latter three all existed prior to the theme park. Fred Gurley was built in 1894 and entered service at Disneyland in 1958. Ernest S. Marsh was constructed in 1925, then entered service at Disneyland in 1959 — and Ward Kimball was constructed in 1902 but was added to the Disneyland Railroad in 2005.
