With the opening of Disneyland in 1955, only two stations existed, Main Street Station and Frontierland Station. Engine No. 1, styled after the wood-burning locomotives of the 1880's would only call at Frontierland, providing a complete non-stop circle around the Magic Kingdom.
The C.K. Holliday was modeled after Walt Disney's own miniature backyard steam engine the Lilly Belle. The C.K. Holliday, the very first train engine created for a Disney Theme Park, cleared the tracks for future railroads at The Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Tokyo Disneyland in Japan and Disneyland Paris in France.
Named after Cyrus Kurtz Holliday (1826 - 1900), he was the Founder of the Atchison & Topeka Railroad in 1859.
