Barbecue fundraiser to be held at Walt Disney’s Barn – Orange County Register

The Carolwood Foundation, the caretakers of Walt’s Barn, is holding its annual summer barbecue.

The barbecue is a fundraiser, and takes place at 6 p.m. Saturday, August 12. Tickets are $75.

Walt’s Barn is the structure that used to house Walt Disney’s miniature live steam train. The barn was moved to the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum in Griffith Park in 1999 by the Carolwood Foundation. The foundation is named after Disney’s miniature railroad line, the Carolwood Pacific Railroad.

In addition to the barn, it also has one of the Disneyland Railroad’s original cars, the Combine Car, on display – restored to pristine condition.

Those who attend will have a chance to see a model of the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland, based on a longtime Disneyland attraction and built by current Disney Imagineer Sam Towler, who is from Fullerton. The foundation is also be working on a restoration project to restore one of the original engines from that attraction and have it on display.
