Disneyland’s Train Fleet goes Green

Disneyland has successfully converted their fleet of antique passenger trains from diesel to biofuel. The move is expected to save the park money and reduce emissions. 

For Disneyland, the switch to biodiesel saves as much as 150,000 gallons of diesel fuel each year, while potentially reducing carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 percent, Disneyland Resort spokesman Bob Tucker said Monday.

"The decision, once we knew the trains would perform well, was an easy one," said Frank Dela Vara, technical director for Disneyland’s Environmental Affairs.

The theme park is also looking at converting many of its backstage vehicles to biofuel. Most of the on-stage vehicles already run on clean burning natural gas. More at the Orange County Register.
