Artist Sam Towler has built a fantastic model of Disneyland’s long gone, but much loved, Mine Train thorugh Nature’s Wonderland attraction. Replaced by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in 1979, generations of Disneyland fans have grown up without knowing the simple magic of the original version. Thanks to Towler, you can now get the experience of an actual on-ride point of view.
This was filmed using one of those Hot Wheels car digital cameras. Not too shabby, eh. Compare with film of the original attraction. Find out more about his model on his blog. Be sure to visit his other blogs to see more creations, like this fantastic Casey’s Jr. Circus Train from 2008. (Video below the jump)
