The Walt Disney Family Museum has announced it will present ‘All Aboard: A Celebration of Walt’s Trains,’ on view from November 13, 2014 through February 9, 2015. The comprehensive exhibition explores the influence that railroading had on Walt Disney’s life and work. It also tells the story of how his railroading legacy lives on to this day in Disney films and theme parks around the world. Including more than 200 artifacts, firsthand accounts, archival videos, images of Walt and his trains and actual model trains running throughout the show, ‘All Aboard’ highlights how Walt’s passion for trains developed long before manifesting itself in Disney short cartoons, feature films, and in Walt’s personal life at home.
