At Disney Springs you’ll find numerous shops new to the area, including a sandal shop called Sanuk. Just outside this shop is a brick facade, and if you look up near the roofline, you’ll see a carving (a relief). The train depicted is a mystery–it’s given enough detail that it appears to be drawn from life, yet I can’t figure out why this particular train should be important.
On the right, the relief. On the left, a google search result for “Engine 484″. It seems like a match to me, but I can’t dig up more info than it belonging to the Illinois Central Railroad.
My first thought – that this was the train Walt served on – appears to be wrong (my friend Steve pointed out that Walt only served on Missouri-Kansas-Texas, Missouri Pacific and Kansas City Southern).
Any ideas to solve this mystery are welcome!
