Mousetalgia welcomes Mine Train expert James Keeline to the show to help us reminisce about the history of Frontierland’s trains in anticipation of the newly renovated Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction. James discusses the history of Rainbow Ridge and the Mine Train attraction, and describes the scenes, special effects, and set pieces that made the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland such a memorable ride for Disneyland guests. James also discusses Mineral Hall, the souvenir shop next to the Mine Train that sold fluorescent minerals and black lights to guests. Also, February is Mousetalgia Music Month, and we start our musical features by discussing our personal favorites in the world of Disney musicians, including Hazel George, Buddy Baker, Randy Newman, and Dave Brubeck. Kristen unveils a new collection of “lost” music that she is bringing back to life. Plus – favorite Disneyland songs, a Tinker Bell Half Marathon engagement… and more!
