Sunday morning meet-up with the CPHS folks for a special dedication of the 50th anniversary of the Disneyland Railroad going online in 1955.  We arrived just in time for the big group picture of CPHS members just inside the gate.  Once the photo was taken, we all headed up to the DLRR Main Street station to hop on board the EP Ripley. Here are a few of the photos we took from that morning.

After our ride around the stations, (with a few photo ops along the way with Michael Broggie and some of the CPHS members) we all met up again over at the Opera house where we checked out the new exhibit and the 50th anniversary film starring Steve Martin and Donald Duck. (cute movie!)

Michael Broggie invited folks to meet up over at Compass Books around 1230pm/1pm for a question and answer chat about his Disneyland memories and a lucky opportunity for us.. well, for SeanYoda at any rate..  =) to get his LE CPHS Disneyland Railroad Spike.  (good thing we didn't go to the post office BEFORE we arrived at the park!) Included are a few photos Pamela took from where she was resting with the camera (and now you know what happens when meeko can't hear or see from where she's at).
